    How many trips did it take to land your first 100# tuna?

    LOL.. all these stories make me feel so much better.. i think. Been chasing the triple digit BFT for last 4/5 seasons... lost count of how many trips. Finally got on them this year.

    Popping Setup Advice Needed

    I think my old dislocated shoulder just flinched hearing Stella 30k... i have a Stella 10k paired with BH Challegner S-801H, same rod as hucklongfin, and its perfect for popping. I don't know if i'd go anything higher than 18/20k just cause... well it takes a toll on my old body. LOL

    Popping Setup Advice Needed

    how long is your topshot? and what knot are you using for braid-topshot? Just wondering if maybe the knot or something is catching or slowing down ? I typically have a braid with a short mono about 3/4 the rod, my knot typically few inches from the tip guide.

    Reliable kill bag stitching

    I'd use white vinegar OR baking soda (NOT BOTH 💣 ).. those are both pretty safe in terms of odor removal and cleaning. I actually use baking soda when i wash my fishing clothes and have had great success with smell and blood.

    Best bolt cutters?

    +1 here on the knipex... they are expensive.. but the quality is worth it. Just like using Channel Lock duck bill pliers.. they are 10 seasons in and still going strong rust and all. I wouldnt want to use a pair of bolt cutters that aren't going to "cut" it.
