671 Giant Bluefin Tuna - Morehead City, NC - Yesterday Capt Mike Marro of (BlueFin Charters Clinton, CT) and Mate Blake Conlin and the visiting crew from CT, whacked a nice Bluefin yesterday. We custom built a couple of "Game On" WinStar Express rods for Mike earlier in the season, just for this fishery..talking with Mike briefly last night he reported that the rods performed above and beyond his expectations and was floored by the toughness of the CalStar blank and the smoothness of the Winthrop Tool / WT Express guides..Kevin Knox our rodbulder built these rods for us to spec's. Quote from Mike.. "We scrached off a winning lottery ticket today @ 9am. 109in. 580lbs. core. she was 671lbs. field dressed. And we are greatful to have her after how slow the fishing has been. This was one pissed off fish taking the 130 Tiagra down to 25 wraps on the reel @ 40 lbs. My new Canyon Gear Winstar Rod was awsome the 340 swivel went through the W/T guides like nothing not even a click. No B.S. the rod was awsome. We darted her in a hour and a half. My mate Blake did a great job as well as my 2 friends from back home in CT John and Frank.. I want to thank all the boats who gave me plenty of room while fighting this monster who had 700yds out there. Well its back up at 3:30 and at it again." Congrats guys!
