    TJ, you missed a good fishing. :)

    This is probably the best bft popping I experienced in Cape Cod Bay.
    We had constant surface action all morning and I had 2 out of 4 on Shibuki. I lost two bft and two Shibuki because I was lazy to replace old Mid Knot I used last week. :x
    We stopped fishing by 11:00 am as we felt enough though birds were working and tuna were popping.
    I used Ocean Revolution's prototype popping rod. The rod was quite impressive. Though the rod is pretty light, it looks very strong and well balanced.

    That has got to be tough to land a big fish on a long rod!

    Yes, it is tough to fight tuna on a long rod, but it took about 15 minutes to land as I use heavy drag and the rod responded well.

    yes it is 8 1/2 rod. This is proto-type rod of Ocean Revolution by Randy of Anglers Proshop. The rod should be available next year.

    Fish don't wait for you and you got to fish when they are biting. :)
