where? the cape? if so, i'd recommend a larger reel. You may be able to land some with that reel but it is not ideal. I'd say a 10k + would be ideal, since some of the fish may be over 150lbs.

tuna sniper 80lb rod or regular OTI 80lb popping rod would be a good match. ive got the 50lb tuna sniper and i think it can handle fish up to about 120lbs or so.

tuna sniper 40 to 60 or the oti 50lb?


Bret has the 40-60lb Tuna sniper AKA 50lb since thats the middle of its usable range

I agree if you get the 8k spool you'll be fine, unless you get one over 250lbs. I had a 136 lbr on my 6k with the 8 spool last season!!
