    SpeedMaseter 20ii - Big Bluefin??

    Back in March I landed a 110# bft on a Shimano Speedmaster 12ii so a 20ii could definitely handle a 150#.....

    September 3 day set ups....

    I already have star drags I can use.... I'm just not sure how light to set the drag so that I don't snap the line when I throw it back in gear.....

    September 3 day set ups....

    I'm thinking about picking up a Fathom 15ld2 to use as my 15/20# reel...... Anyone use a Fathom 15ld2 for lightweight bait fishing?

    Bunk mattress sizes?

    I ended up buying a queen sized flat sheet and had a friend sew it in half the long way so I can slide the bunk mattress inside and just use a blanket to cover me...... I think it'll be cooler than sleeping inside a sleeping bag and cleaner than just laying on the mattress.....

    Which rod to get?

    Okuma PCH-C-801H

    You should check out the Black Hole line of rods! They are ultra light weight and easy to work poppers and stickbaits all day

    Shimano Speed Master 12II Review

    I can't afford a 2 speed reel for each line class...... So my reels cover 2 leader sizes

    Shimano Speed Master 12II Review

    Generally I run my reels like this 12ii for 30 or 40 16ii for 50 or 60 When I landed the 110# bft I used a 50# leader (because I didn't own a 16ii then)

    Shimano Speed Master 12II Review

    I have mine mounted on an Okuma PCH 801H! It's a great lightweight combo you can fish all day without fatigue

    Bunk mattress sizes?

    Did you put the mattress inside the fleece bag or did you just sleep in the bag? I want to the mattress "in" the bag and sleep on top of using a regular fitted sheet and flat sheet set

    Bluefin reels for San Diego 2020 summer season

    I just got a Fathom 40nld2 and it's gonna be loaded with JB soild 80# braid and go on a Okuma PCH-C-74xxh. I'm gonna use it for yo-yo, big baits and flat falls. Hoping that setup will put me in the medium (150#) tuna game!
