Q&A: Yellowfin Tuna Popping Rod Recommendation with Stella 14k

Updated: Apr 19, 2020


"Looking for something to fish YFT in the Gulf for popping, can handle the cows, paired with new Stella 14000. Also that 14000 what do you think about the line capacity? 900 ft of 60 ."


"I recommend 7'3' and 8' Black Hole Challenger Bank H rods for YFT in Gulp of Mexico. (

If you look for two-piece rods, I recommend 7'6", 8' and 8'6" Black Hole Cape Cod Special popping rods. (

I don't think you get 900 yards of 60 lb with the reel. Normally 400 -500 yards are good enough."
