This is off topic but: I just got back from a machine shop. I'm having a special knob made for the Accurate 665W 2-speed. It is going to fit my hand just perfect. It's going to cost me about half the price of the reel, but I think I will like it. I'm debating if I should get six made. He will lower the price by 30% if I buy six.
get me the print, or a sample and I bet the guy next door to us will knock your sox off on price.... he is needing some work. He has top of the line cutting equipment. (hes not the same guy I got my prices fro mon my plates- still working on that when I find the extra time)....
You always have pictures of big fish!!
Thanks for the encouragement.
I love to catch a 200 + lbs tuna on jigs or poppers, but I have no illusion.
It will be tough and I need a luck.
I read Danny Osuna caught a cow while flat lining with live bullet tuna.
When he threw away live skipjack and use a bullet tuna for cow, it must be better bait for cow. Flat lining with big skipjack or bullet tuna for cow while drifting should be as much fun as to catch them on jigs or poppers.
I see you are hanging out with the usual suspects. Tell Sami and Tom nice Tuna!
I picked up a 55lb. yf on popper last week on big e.
going again oct.4 My last hurraa on big e.
Hi Steve, How have you been ?
I didn't go with them. I went on a private boat on Sat, but I couldn't get hit though I cast my popper in the middle and in front of boiling tuna.
When Sami's group's trip was canceled due to boat's engine problem, I arranged another boat for them and they had a fabulous popping trip on the boat.
I am going up to Cape Cod alone tomorrow again. I am determined not to come back home until I get a bluefin on a popper.
I really wanted to fish on the Big E and I don't think I have any chance at all. Good luck on the Big E.
