Hey guys, just bumping this thread again after couple year.

Just wondering what’s everyone preference for a bait caster reel and rod, and what size boat would be too small for something like this, knowing a tinny wouldn’t be a great option but like a 4.2m with 70hp and above alright?

Depends there you launch from.
I wouldn't go under a 4.8mt runabout but that's me.

I would use anything under a tld 30 size reel.

Thanks for the reply, I’ll be a bit of a noob with boating and then tryna land one so just tryna get an idea on what and how I should go about it plus get experience up to have a crack. Threads been helpful, just wasn’t sure on best sort of combo to tackle one.

Hahaha they’re some bad ass shark! Seen a video recently of on that was hooked up and it took out a seal, would’ve been a great show live but couldn’t see too much on the video. I’d like to make it a long fight so it tired right out for it to come anywhere near a boat after hearing a story from a mate that one jumped into the boat.
