    Here are some more pictures of the BoomVang trip. Seasick all the way out but the payoff more than made up for it. My buddy Aaron on third cast landed 65lb YFT and on last drift 85lb YFT for myself on flying fish on custom WS3 Calstar Mini out of cali w Avet MXL 2spd.50 jb braid w 40 lb momoi topshot. Everyone likes to poke fun at my snoopy rod till I get the big dog:p Hope to break 3 digits next time. Thanks to the La Pesca crew n captains, Timmy n Ryan See U Soon!!!

    Ed makes the most georgous rods. Saving 4 next one thats gonna b a heavy shark rod. Everyone in the gulf pretty impressed w west coast craftsmanship. I'll never buy from anyone else.

    That whopper stopper above was a Calstar WS3L 15-30#.

    Just goes to show that it does not take an XXH rod to land a YFT!!!

    Light tackle is the only way to go IMO! Save the XXH for the Mako's!
