    WANTED Penn 9/0 aftermarket handle

    I just finished converting my Penn 9/0 with Accurate frame and sideplates but I am looking for something a bit larger than the Accurate handle. I know Tiburon makes a nice one but does anyone know of any other manufacturers of larger handles for this reel? Thanks in advance!

    Shootout in Los Barriles

    Automatic weapons fire kills 3 in Los Barriles. Bad news for a small town. It appears to be a turf war over drug sales. I never thought it would get to this down here. Sad story.

    Tuna at The East Cape

    Just got word this morning that the tuna showed yesterday. Saw a photo of a 65 pounder. The Palmas was scheduled to send out eight boats this morning but because of the tuna, they sent out eighteen! Great for the economy. Better go get you sum of that!
