Q&A: Bluefin Popping Rod Recommendation in Cape Cod, MA


"Hey, I book a trip with jimmy from On Time Charters for Bluefin Tuna. I'm looking to buy a popping rod for up in Cape Cod to fish with him?? I don’t need the most expensive just one that will work?? And I guess I should use what size Shimano Stella?"


"For Bluefin up to 250 lb, I recommend 7'3" Black Hole Challenger Bank 731H spinning rod
