My choice for tackle Cal Star Graphighter and Deckhand Series rated for 80# here great for the big bluefin combine with the Shimano Talica above or any of the reels in the table above for a great rod/reel combo for larger San Diego big gamefish bluefish tuna being caught as we head into December! Here's direct link to the Cal Star Deckhand Series
It’s rare to even see a set of these in a tackle shop. For the most part – you have to special order them directly from Avet or on direct link to Raptor here. I had the pleasure of fishing a Raptor earlier this year and it would be impossible to describe these reels as anything other than spectacular. These reels are bomb proof, have the toughest drag i’ve seen on a kite fishing reel, and are customized to meet your style requirements. These reels are HOT! With technical specs like X:X for a retrieve ratio and weighing in at XX – an investment in Avet is the last set of kite fishing reels you will ever buy.Suggested Tackle: CalStar 800 Deckhand Series

Big events happen fast and unforgiving when tuna fishing - the key is to be ready seconds after you hear the angler or deckhand yell hook-up! - If you can have multiple rod/reel fishing combos you can be ready for any change in conditions or fish target when that precious moment hits on troll when an angler yells, "HOOKUUUPPPP!" The boat then does what's called "slide" into nuetral and immediately the Captain calls out to the deckhand how much live bait to pitch to keep the tuna on the surface and biting angler lines who should already have a bait or jig in the water. Timing and teamwork is essential in successfull tuna fishing Southern California stand-up hook and line style. When the Captain calls out on com what size fish are being marked under the boat, the listening angler then picks up and casts the saltwater fishing rod/reel combo right for the bite. Having multiple setups all ready to go is awesome and can mean the difference between that bucket list 150# class Bluefin Tuna ending up in proud pics and on the plate that night over a beer telling the story how glad you are you invested in all this top-quality saltwater fishing tackle this guy Rob at SportfishSanDiego.com suggested he get! I love helping fellow anglers land those hard to get once in a lifetime fish.
