    Diane and I met Capt.Chip at 4:15AM and launched around 4:45AM. While the conditions were not perfect, there wasn't a lot of fog, which had made the last trip nearly unfishable. Although the visibility was good, there was not a lot of activity to be seen. The morning was quite slow aside from a wide-open striper bite that lasted an hour or so. Around 1PM we spotted some birds working an area pretty hard. We started casting toward them and caught a bluefish and another striper. I thought we were on another school of stripers when the Saltiga slider went bye-bye. The fight was on!!! I was using the BD100 (wishing it was the BD200) with a 20K and PE6. Its first run must have taken at least 250 yards with about 20-22 pounds of drag. I could tell this was a different animal. After 25 minutes I saw color. A lot of color. Chip sank the first gaff and I followed with the second. When 68 inches of tuna came over the rail I almost threw up from excitement. For anyone who hasn’t had the chance to fish with Chip, you’re missing out on a tremendously good time… oh yeah, he’s also very, very fishy! Enjoy the photos…

    Simply, Bad Ass! Looks like a Yo-Zuri Sashimi lure! Nice!
    why is there such surprise for the coffee grinders, thats all they use on the east coast, and have just as much drag as conventional reels and sometime more than most conventionals! I have a Shimano Speros 6000 and its not a big reel at all and it supplies more drag than my Avets JX-6.3 2 speeds!
