I go for albacore tomorrow. That'll be a new experience in tuna entirely (yes Alpinetrout, REAL tuna)
well... some bonitos are around the shore here... those "little tuna" are always fun.
Refer to gear selection, to me, proper gear match proper fish with good technique... and beware of those unexpected individuals.
I have taken some respectful size stripped bass on click and paw reels. Heavy leader and proper technique get them in as quickly as using those sealed drag reels. Plus, a burning finger experience is just another priceless experience IMO.
