    after a 5 month hiatus outta the water (wind, work, family, etc) I had the chance to use for the 1st time my first ever custom rod (built from a blank and accesories) built by yours truly.
    https://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/threads/my-first-rod-built-steelman-by-steelfish.705943/

    this rod might be overkill for the zone I was going to fish, which is a rock Island at 20 miles infront of the town we call it the Consag Island, normally fisheries there are spanish macks, corvinas, triggerfish and with some luck also groupers, but I was with the urge to use the new rod and feel how it work while trolling some deep diving lures and maybe how it works with a nice fish, I must say I love it, liked the action of the rod, its a Seeker composite 130lb 6ft, for being a 130# rod it has a nice flex even with smaller fish like the Sierras (spanish macks) of 6-8 lb, after some hours fishing I found out it wasnt that bad idea to use that rod cuz after catching some sierras and some 4-5# corvinas my partner caught a big grouper of an estimated of 30-35# maybe a bit more (sorry no pics), so, chances are I could had caught that one with my rod LOL, so, better to be prepared for a nice fight than undergunned, anyway, the fishing was slow for most of the day, maybe 30 minutes before we called a day I caught another nice grouper, not as big as the one of my partner but almost 20#, it gave a really nice fight, of course the rod could handled it with no much problems as well as the mak15, after that fish we trolled for a bit more but no much luck so we called it a day and took the panga back to land.

    few pics of the fishing day and the grouper which it was catch & fillet
    in few more days Sierras should be all over the Consag rock

    That rock is a underwater "Garden of Eden" in an other wise barren sandy northern gulf. I've had some epic grouper fishing there as well
