    Here are pictures of fighting a nice bluefin with Ocean Revolotion Black Devel 100 by Willy and Ryan yesterday.
    The rod is rated upto 60 lbs, but it shows it can handle big tuna.
    Unfortunately the big tuna estimated at least 160 lbs was lost after long fight because the treble hook got bent.

    Most king mack fishermen fish 2lbs of drag with their little trebs. I predict that with the heavier reels, stronger rods, bigger fish and overeager anglers, this will be an unfortunate but common theme throughout the entire NE season. Although they will need way more than 2lbs, anglers will have to learn the limits of what the hooks will take with the fish and equipment they have now.

    looks very similar to the vmc hooks that bend out way too easy.

    You are funny. :) I think he is looking for more detailed info.
    The area we fished are around Peaked Hill Bar area a few miles south of Provincetown. We went SW corner first, but it was pretty quiet.

    I like the picture of this bent rod.

    However the other picture kil posted of the tuna sniper 40-60 was even more amazing. Pametfisher made some great analysis.

    I wonder if he can do it for the bd100 as well.

    Very Cool Rich.
    I'm all for a forgiving rod. Especially when its more than 8 feet long with a 150+ tuna on the end of it. Insane pain in the membrane for a non-forgiver...

    I thought ID10T asked a valid question. Is this a fishing forum where fisherman share information and knowledge or a place for charter boats to advertise for free? As usual Kilsong is a gentleman.

    You don't know Dom. I know he must post it as jest.
    When I fish with Dom, my complaint is he expose his spot too easily and too quick. When he find some areas with tuna, birds and whales feeding on the surface, he call other Capt on the radio before I cast. :eek:
    On Sunday trip, he even gave lat/long numbers on the radio, and severel boats rushed to us in addition to a couple of boats Dam called in.

    It is not wreckfishing, old numbers mean nothing. Cart Mark of the Canyon Runner used to say yesterday's hot number is like yesterday's lottery number. :)
