    Amazing as it seems this tuna bite just seems to get better and better as the months roll on. The quality of the fish is outstanding - all the fish were 100lbs to 150lbs plus.
    Kept four and kicked the rest loose - not bad for a few hours work on a Sunday!
    Fun fishing for sure and enjoyed using our new Okuma Makaira reels.






    Capt Manny on the Whooper Stopper = pain

    How was Alaska compa ?

    come on down, wide open on tunas right now

    Clarke, Nice mess of tuna!! Tell me more about the reels. What size were you using, are they as smooth as their advertising says, and the close up picture looks like an extra long handle??? After reading all the hype they sound like they might give the other two companies a run for their money!!

    more like Okuma now owns Tiburon :D. Okuma is a giant company in Japan with industries far larger than it's fishing interests I believe.

    I was impressed with the Makaira 15's. The fit and finish on them is very good and the drag was really smooth. Great live bait reel and made quick work of the 150lb class tuna using 80lb spectra. One feature that attracted me for PV use were the harness eyelets. From a guy who spent 5 hours pulling on a 300lber with a McGuyvered harness attached to a JX, I can see its benefit. Of course, only a season of PV style punishment will be the true test. I will likely buy a 20 and 30 for fly lining cabbies during cow season.
