    Thanks everyone. As for bait Goliaths are not to picky but we caught these on a bluefish and jacks. Salty Gator the reel is spooled with 200lb. dacron to 600lb. mono top shot crimped directly to the hook.

    Thank YOU Bearmatic for your service to our country. I am not a veteran (one of my few regrets in life) so this is my small way to honor those guys and gals for the sacrifices they (and you) made while serving. I love this country and know for 100% certain we would not be here today without our military - period. I teach my 8 year old daughter about it all the time because they darn sure don't teach them about it in school.

    Nice! Glad to hear that you like the reels!

    I researched for about two months as well and finally settled on a pair of Mak 15s for gags / jacks / snapper / tuna up here in NW Florida. I was tempted to go to the 20s, but the whole point was to have a light rig that would whoop most fish. The 20s had be right back in the ol' 6/0 ball park. Wish they had something between the 15s and the 20s.

    Have yet to go on a fishing trip where I need them, but that will all change in two weeks when I head over to Venice. Obviously they aren't putting out 85lbs of drag, but they'll max out at 32 and can be bumped up a touch more... which should handle most gags.

    I have my eyes on a pair of 15's as well. I think these have come a long way.
