    Kevin,

    I don't know about the reel, but I've got a couple of old Penn spinners I would trade for a new one. Oh, wait...

    And by the way, when you go on your December trip, if Gunsmoke is on the boat and hands you a loaded rifle, don't fire it. :)

    if you even see Gunsmoke.. just turn and walk the other way.....lol... or else hide all you gear, and keep your hands in your pockets..hehe.. About to look up those tracking numbers on UPS to make sure its on its way! The packages left at 4:20pm today.

    That reel you got looks pretty neat. I google searched it, and found a few sites with information on em. Kinda looks like it compares to a torium 30. Which will handle YFT. If it was used for Halibut, I am sure it has some drag that will allow you to handle YFT. Theres some swimbaits in the packages, those work good when the chunk bite is on(this reel you are askin about will work good for throwing those) practice before you go out.

    I was going to Kona for New Years, but my wife is real sick right now and I canceled the trip today. So I just might come down to Port A and bring in the New Year with a Tuna & Marlin hunt. I've used up all my hunting tags and I'm in the mood to fish and test new tackle.

    Oso, do you need a mentor? If so, I just might be the guy to brighten up your life. I do take firearms onboard and enjoy the sport of waking up flying fish with the sound of exploding gun powder. It's a powerful feeling being in deep blue water with a variety of guns, rods & reels, and a little libation to ease the edge.

    It's like you own the world. Man, machine, whiskey, tackle, fish and only the rules you establish. It's a great way to relax, unwind and forget about all the daily hassles of life. The best part is you might hook on to something that is a lot more of a rebel than yourself. The thrill of locking up a drag and trying not to be pulled overboard is second to none.

    Gunsmoke,

    All my friends have told me all my life I am an outrageous SOB. Since becoming acquainted with this board, I have been saving your posts to use in my defense. If you had just told them to me verbally, and never published them on this site and established some degree of copyright, I would claim them as my own, write a book, and claim I never heard of you!

    I can agree personally with everything you say except for the whiskey. I had to give that up almost exactly 20 years ago after a long, unfortunate alleged episode at the Continental Lounge on Congress Avenue, when a quart of Henry McKenna disappeared down my throat as though by magic, I became overly-sentimental, and 3 bouncers decided that I over-reacted to the acid rock lead singer's refusal to do my request for an old-time gospel song. I still don't believe what they say happened. Oh, and there was a female quartet from San Antonio called "The Delights" involved as well, who drove a gold Toranado, but I am still trying to reconstruct out the details on that part.

    I hope your wife has a comlete and speedy recovery.

    Russ

    watch the hooks on those swimbaits... they arent the BIG hooks.. as I dont believe the bigger ones will work right now(match the hatch??) Dont apply too much drag that it will bend the hooks... Get Tony to help you set your drags on your reels.. take a hand held drag scale(Academy sells em for around $5)

    Bigfish4you,
    That was very nice of you to give Oso that great reel. What goes around, comes around. Something good should happen to you soon.

    -------------------------

    Uncle Russ,
    GS has a way of making something strange happen out of nothing. If he's looking for a smile, watch out. I've been the ginny pig countless times. I just go with the flow and not let it bother me. That devious mind of his is always active and you never know what is coming next. He is the extreme of the old saying (He works hard and plays hard).

    He started a book a few years back. I got to read the first chapter. It was priceless.

    -----------------------------------

    Gunsmoke,
    I read Oso's bio. He's only 15, goes to a Catholic school, and his parents are lawyers. If I remember correctly, you're already on the sheit list with one priest and a few lawyers. I don't think being his mentor is a good idea.

    I couldn't agree more myself. Sorry Oso. Thought you were older. Going fishing with a wise mentor like myself just might be a little over the top. My teachings might be considered a little to harsh for a 15 year old Catholic student.

    By the way, I'm Catholic. I went to a Catholic military elementary boy's school. I was taught by Nuns from France. Sad to say, my mother thought she was getting me a superior education than available through the public system. I learned to read, write, do basic math and play sports. That's it. They had a map of the world on the wall but we never got into geography, history or science.

    Those nuns beat the living crap out of me every day. They would get their pointer stick, make you place your hands on the desk, and then slam that big round stick on your hands and fingers. My hands are now abnormal. I can't
    even find a pair of gloves to go over them. The funny thing is I almost became a Priest. In eight grade the Priest recruited me to the point where I almost went for it.

    Hey just because I go to a private school doesnt mean Im a little schoolboy I guess you could say. Nuns from France,,,,,did they happen to be Incarnate Word nuns? O ya, my first grade teacher was the only real traditional nun, and she did kinda tap you on the head with her little pointer thing, nothing bad though. I would love to fish with ya:D
