We placed 10th among a field of 111 boats, pretty proud of that. Here is some footage, enjoy!!

Byrd, 

 

We use a special graph to find estimate weight. By measuring from th fork of the tail to the tip of the lower jaw, we plot that measurement and it gives us a weight that's accurate to within around 20lb or so. If it was bigger than 300, it wasn't by much :) 

 

I've got a few more gamefishing videos on that youtube account as well if you wanna check them out.

Here is a re-edited version of that video. I managed to get some footage from the deckie cam for the second day in this one and the music isn't so heavy lol

Thanks paw! That video won a competition the tournament organizers held for the best movie made of the weekend's fishing. Got myself a nice little Shimano Tiagra 30W for first place :) Phone Post

I use a Tiagra 50W LRS for the big guys... The Tiagras have smooth drags and are very moddable.

Yeah there isn't a reel on the market that is better for value IMO. Pretty much 90% of the Aussie gamefishing fleet use them and so do we. The Makaira series from Okuma are gaining popularity but they won't ever steal the big game reel market in Australia from Shimano.

I've got a 50WLRS as well and it has been great. Just gotta do a few mods to the drag washers to get it working like a normal 50W reel though Phone Post
