Blue fin tuna advice

Postby MsShimano » Tue Mar 07, 2017 7:02 pm

So I bought a beautiful combo that can be used for some game fishing (Shimano Saragosa 10000 spooled with Shimano Power Pro Depth Hunter 50lb braid tied on to a 80lb leader, matched perfectly with a Shimano Terez black 3-5 PE.) this rod is best used for casting or bait fishing. So this brings me to my question. What stick Baits/teasers are people using or if anyone out there has a Terez with roughly the same reel what kind of lures are they using. Any information will be very helpful! Thanks

To start off with I would recommend having a few more rods in the boat ready. Would recommend Okuma Salina combos or the more modern Azores.
Whats the casting weight of your combo?

Also would suggest a few rods better suited to trolling.

The Terez will be fine trolling, I use 7ft Kingmacks as trolling rods on some targets. Gimbal butts are better as they lock in the holders and Fuji do a brilliant round rubber butt cap with the gimbal cutout that's actually on the kingmacks from factory, not sure if it's present on the Terez.

The Ocea pencils and rocket dives will be fine to cast. As to similar weighted stickbaits. Heavy weighted jigheads with a plastic will be fine too. I've run xrap 30s on the kingmacks and it's been fine even at 5-6knots trolling, would think on the heavier rated Terez it'd be a piece of cake

I've got a Storm So-Run Heavy Minnow that casts really well. Havn't caught a fish with it yet but it comes recommended by the guys behind Morningtide and I highly doubt they'd use anything that fish didn't like.

About $20 from BCF, cheaper at some other places online
2015/16 Species comp total: 289cm
Brown Trout: 37cm
Flathead: 51cm; Squid: 36cm; Australian Salmon: 51cm; Snapper 46cm; Silver Trevally 23cm; KGW: 45cm
