TFD Big Fish Rods

Postby Bob Daly » Tue Jan 16, 2018 1:55 pm

Just back from battling golden dorado at La Zona. Used the TFD BFC 7ft 6in Mag 3. This rod handled the monster dorado without any problems. It was very hot in Argentina so casting giant poppers all day on this light rod really enable me to last the entire day. The rod loads up fast so I could cast the heavy poppers a country mile. Highly recommend this rod for big monster species! The water currently in La Zona is very low without much flow which makes the bite tough. However I was able to land a 48lbs and my buddy a 50lbs. Heading to the Chicago Fishing Show in a few weeks to buy another. 8)

That sounds fun. Was the Mag 3 just right, or now that you have used it would a Mag 2 have been better?
I think my bucket list has a hole in the bottom!

HI AKA. The Mag 3 was perfect! Am going to buy another in a few weeks. Got a few of the spinning rod blanks finalized by Thorne Bros. Will be taking them to Misima Island in a few weeks to see if they hold up to the GTs and doggies.
