    I was talking to Matt from Galveston Party boats and he is interested in a harpoon to reach out and touch pinwheeling fish that are staying out of gaff range. Any recommendations from anyone who uses harpoons? Expected tuna would be between 150-200 lb YFT. He has long gaffs but the big fish manage to stay 15 - 20 feet from the boat...

    Shoals harpoons are good. I use an 8ft 2 piece, front weighted.
