Trying to get the right set up for this type of fishing. My last set up couldnt handle the job. Can you go with a Penn reel or Quantum Reel for this type of fishing? Also what type of rod could a guy use? Power/length Thanks KJ

You could possibly get by with a quantum Cabo, but the minimum for Tuna should be a Shimano Saragossa with the newer spool nut.

I would look into the OTI popping rods, the 80lb tuna sniper would be my first choice but If your on a tight budget I would go for the 80Lb 7 ft 6 OTI popping rod and use the extra $75 dollars towards the Saragossa.

Thanks d-a for the info. You are talking about the Saragossa 1800f right? Spooled with 65# spectra. Let me ask you this when throwing the popper's at night, what color's do you like in the poppers?
