    Hi Guys,
    For the past 4 years Saltywater Tackle was taking the lead on catching the first Bluefin tuna in North Carolina jigging and popping,
    2012 was an exception to us as we caught the first fish on January 14, and all fishes on that day measured from 82 inches to 84 inches,
    We've been chartering Captain Ned Ashby from Sea Breeze every year on the 4th of Feb, in 2009 &2010 &2011 we open up the season and caught the first fish on the same period,
    As such I booked 5 days on the Sea Breeze starting from the 4th of Feb and ending on the 8th,
    The cost for the charter will be $1800 excluding tips and will be divided between 5 anglers $360 per person, interested call us at the shop at 718 648 2665, we require $150.00 nonrefundable deposit for every day to secure the spot and the rest will be paid on the day we charter the boat, in case of a bad weather a full refund will be issued.
    The following is the schedule:

    Feb 4th:
    1 Sami
    2 Courtland $150 deposit paid
    3 Courtland $150 deposit paid
    4 Hugh Phan $150 deposit paid
    5 John Tolerton $150 deposit paid

    Please do. Give me 2 spots for both Monday and Tuesday. I also need you to bring me a rod or 2. We can discuss that later though.

    FYI, if the trip fills up I may relinquish 2nd. spot to someone who wants it and deserves it. I booked it so I would have company on the ride, although it is quite possible I cannot find a rider I will still pay 2 spots in full. You need me to call shop with CC#?

    I would also like a "high end/no warranty/too much profit margin" 350-400G conventional to pair with a SOM. I like a FULLY parabolic/light tip section that will fully deflect under load leaving me a "short" butt section(maybe first 2 guides) to fight with. My JM 500G is too much rod for me and my 300 is not quite enough for that fishery. I will fish about 22-25# of drag and thumb it when needed. I usually finish up the battle around 28-30#. I am up for something new. What can you bring me, suggestions?

    Hi Courtland,
    Yes, please call us at the shop.
    Three rods that we recommend are the OBX-5410XX, the MC Works SB 516SS and the Valley Hill Moari Spirits EXP-55XXB
    All three rods are equally parabolic but the OBX and Moari Spirits has a lighter tip due to the longer length.
    The OBX and MC Works rod have a max drag of 15kg and the Moari Spirits 14kg max drag.

    Best regards,
    Paul.
