    Some of your smaller poppers green or blue with glow. The last Big E trips I was on the Tuna have been after the small poppers. I have a couple of Nemos. They look to big. Couple of red Jitterbel the next size down from 420 gm. Been catching YF just letting them hang out the side of the boat 300 ft.

    Al,
    Are talking about the Goana cruiser? how many and what colors?
    We sold out of the jitterbell 320g jigs, i do have the 420g jigs in stock.

    Doug,
    I will have 3 of the 8 1/2 ft prototype popping rods with me, so you guys are welcome to try it out.

    TJ, do you have any weighted PR Bobbins? I haven't been able to find any. If not, maybe you can tie my braid to fluoro on my Stella 20K?

    If you have any of the Komoto Dragon Poppers (from our Lloyn Noble tuna trip) - I'll take three in blue.

    Looking forward to watching you in action again - the YFT don't stand a chance :)

    I have most of your jigs including the 420gm Jitterbel. I was looking for a smaller popper, I have some so I will stick with what I have.

    Thanks

    I always wondered what UR looks like.

    TJ, Please bring me a Wombat in "Flames" color. Everyone has it in Nemo and I am bound to become confused. Flames are cool.

    TJ, I have one from BPS and was told this am weights could be added to a regular thread spool - so I'm good. Angler's pro shop sells both the PR Bobbin and metal spools as a set but they're been out of stock for a couple of months.
    The poppers at Lloyd Noble you had were about 1 1/2 times larger than the full size poppers you carry. You mentioned they were still prototypes. I think you even had some that were unpainted (still in bare wood).

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure why my "PRBobbin" is being converted to Page Ranking Bobbin. :confused:
