Rad vid. We hooked one about the same class on that same ugly ass Nemo popper last week. Unfortunately, our results were different.

They are a beastly little reel, BD user Shon got a 132lb bluefin last season on a 500HG on a surface iron. We nearly got spooled on the first run, but after that we were golden. After seeing that I went out and bought a PG though :D

    Ha! I filmed that video. Stoked you dig it. That was the first week of June I believe, 7 or 8 miles off LJ with not another boat around and bluefin everywhere.

    Hey Bryan, I grew up with Charlies dad and many of his friends..... Charlies dad Andy was/is one very fishy dude. Funny thing is, I remember so vivid when we were young surf/fish groms just like you guys in this video....Keep living it up like this...... life moves by fast..... enjoy!!

    And Bryan..... your editing skills are awesome.... keep it up!! I wish I knew how to edit like that!!
