Actually this guy is fishing a Shimano Terez rod and a $1000 Stella reel. It was a kick ass set up and was usually used for throwing jigs and poppers. He was usually fishing high end conventional gear but brought some spinning set ups to try them out.

Dennis Braid actually has a few spinning outfits that he slays fish on...
Ain't gonna lie-- I always take a nice Fin-Nor for that very reason. When tuna are crashing the popper, it's pretty darn cool! I've always got a kick out of the west coast preference for conventional gear, whereas as on the east coast you see more heavy spinning in the mix. As long as fish are being caught, it's all good. But, $1000 for a Stella? Sounding like flyfishing....

I wonder if my 83 pounder is still good for second largest bluefin of the season? Still amazed at the size of the bluefin on this trip.
