Tuna/Shark Advice

Recommended Posts

Got invited by a friend to go on a tuna shark trip out of Montauk this year. Seasoned boaters and fisherman but have never targeted these unless on our annual charter trips(buddy upgraded boats 2 years ago and wants to go on our own)

looking for rod/reel recommendations that would be semi universal and be good enough 80% of the time. Not looking to break the bank also not looking to break records. Just have a good time

Chunking, trolling, casting?  Start there. I’m assuming stand up tackle?  Lightweight gear will likely be 30 lb test if mono. Mid weight at 50 lb and heavy at 80 lb tackle.  Sharks require wire bite tippet, for example.
