    Re: Bay Tuna

    I can hook the bastards - it just goes to crap from there.
    Why is it when you practice your casting you can hurl it forever but tuna pop up 10m in front and you flub it???
    In shooting terms it's called buck fever, BUT what do they call it in fishing, TOOONA FEVER???

    Hey Dave
    Thought we'd make it a late session. Left M/bah at 11.30 and headed out. Took 1hr 15 to travel 9k, got to the spot and had green ones trying to get in with us, we drifted aruond for 20mins and one popped in range and got him. Heaps of fish cruising around but it was all to hard trying to get set so we headed back to M/bah bay just in time for a mega scud to come thru. Blew about 35kn and pissed down so we pulled the pin.
    One good thing came out of the day though , we got to spend 3hrs sitting on the side of the highway changing wheel bearings.

    Re: Bay Tuna

    Ah the Orvis Vortex, I'd try a Steelfin XFR if I was into LA reels for long tails. 4.6 inches, holds enough line for those "minnows" and has a drop off spool. Cheaper than a Vortex, no spool holes, drag is absolutely smooth, and it's German engineering. See Absolutely fantastic. Or you might try a Old Florida Super Arbor Model 8 . its 4.5 inches, big cork drag, holds 500 of BB, and a running line and head. Cheers Max

    Re: Bay Tuna

    Thanks Max but the deed is already done. 11/12 Vortex holds about 450m of 50lb b/b so will be way more than enough for longtails and hopefully enough for billy's. 11/12 is also 4.5 inch spool diam and super smooth drag. Looks weally pretty though.
