    Congrats on the giant-ful trip
    I just wanna ask a question off-topic, is it OK to use a rod deigned for jigging with no roller guides for those monsters?well I see that you have succesfully landed it, but is this common practice with no major drawbacks?

    An absolute madness to see 7 strikes on the kite getting missed.

    "awesome" is an understatement, especially since I was at the other end of line line, bracing myself each time for that initial freight train run.

    Wow big fish Sami, and sweet pics Tom! Looks like you guys had an amazing trip. Now that you got those monsters out of your system, time to get the light gear going again...Congrats to both anglers on their accomplishments. Hope to see you guys soon up here on the Cape, the fall run is starting to show signs of life!

    Very impressive report guys - congrats on the big fish, quicker than average fight times. I have not been able to experience this fishery first hand but you make it look as "textbook" as one can get congrats again!

    Awesome fishing, Are those just standard MNSG guides on the MC works?

    Hi elpescador,
    Yes, those are standard MNSG guides on the MC Works 5310XX prototype rod.
