    Can I ask why you are flying the Canadian flag over the Flag of the USA?......
  5. Chase This!

    Yes you may. Because we were IN Canada. And that's a Canadian owned and operated vessel.

    What kind of rods or blanks do you fish on those bad boys?
  17. Chase This!

    They were Calstar Boomers with Winthrop guides wrapped by Don Savage of Savage Rods in Houston, Texas.

    That is awesome!
    Would you mind giving a run down of what type of gear you were using? i.e. line, # test etc.

    Stand Up:

    Tiagra 80 loaded with 200# braid and a 100ft 200# Momoi diamond wind-on connected loop to loop to the bimini in the main line.

    Avet 80 loaded with 130# Jerry Brown solid and a 200ft 200# Momoi Diamond wind-on connected loop to loop to the bimini in the main line.

    Canyon 80 loaded with 130# Momoi Diamond braid a 100 yard 200# Momoi Diamond wind-on connected loop to loop to the bimini in the main line.

    Rods were Savage Rods. Both were Calstar Boomer 80-130# blanks, both had Winthrop guides (one had oversized Winthrops), and both had AFTCO short bent butts.

    The rods for the Canyon reels were boat rods one with AFTCO and the other with Stuart guides. I do not recall the builder or blank.

    Harness and belt were Smitty. These were KEY to landing these giants.

    We used multiple 130s in the chair. All with 8ft broomstick rods. All 200# dacron with 200# Momoi Diamond spliced into it.

    Please let me know if I left anything off.
