    Offshore Huge bluefin out of Newport

    I was on the boat when the 364 was caught last week. Caught on frozen flyer on a balloon. 50 sized Avet. Loaner rod from the charter master. One, maybe two fish lost. Passengers were experienced and had the right gear.

    What size top shot for casting poppers on conventional?

    I had 75yds of 50# mono put on before I went on a popper trip. It was a nightmare. Maybe it was the light weight of the popper but I kept getting a springy bundle of mono bunched up on my reel. I stripped it off on the boat and tied my braid directly to my 100# leader to the popper. Much better.

    For guys getting punctures from spines, I repaired my Boone bag. Go to home depot and get the pvc shower liner. Comes in a small sheet. Pvc liner glue and you are good to go.
