Yes. But p line so it is more like 10llb. If they are over 5llb fish I'll use my calcuta with 12llb pound pline. Wish me luck.

Bones on the light line are fun.....and I guess depending on the load, you might be able to get away with it on a public sport boat. Use a short 12 inch 20 pound mono leader.

Fishing 6 pound on a full sport boat sounds like a good way to ruin everybody else's day.....leave that goal for when you have your own boat :smoking33::smoking33:

Im one of the first to say I love catching small tuna on a calcutta 250 and a bass rod but I make damn sure that I will in no way hinder the other anglers. IE if your the only one left bent and people are waiting on you that is a problem. If you cant maneuver well around the boat without being a hinderance to other anglers that too is and issue.

If you can pull all that off without being the hold up then what the heck. However I would be sure everyone has had a good share of fish first. Captain may be pissed if your breaking off fish that somebody else could have caught and ate. JMO

Just a little more feedback for you.

About 4 years ago I would ride the Liberty on its full day trips to Cat every Friday.

There was always a very light load, maybe 20 people, sometimes less. I would use my calcutta 250 with 10 pound P-Line and catch fire cracker yellows (4-6 pounders).

I would also use my daiwa coastal with 6 pound on the bonito (with a short 12 inch section of 20 pound mono leader).

I had no problem doing this, but the load was light, and the captain was cool.

who gives a fuck!!! Let him fish how he wants to fish! Its not that big a deal especially for bone heads.:imdumb: If the other fishermen start to get upset they'll let him know real quick :_smack_:He'll probably catch more fish anyways....fishermen nowadays go out there with overkill equipment trying to look cool and professional when they are fishing locally and dont catch :shithappens:.

Well...you just have to realize that if you are fishing on a sport boat, have some courtesy for others and don't fish like you own the boat....especially when the boat is crowded. But in this case, it is ok since the original poster said the load was light.
