    Thanks JasonD, yes, a half one mast on the flybridge, then above one full 5,50 meters and on top a 130 lbs tyrnos rod ("customized"). This one on the picture: the mast 100 % Carbon, but on my own boat 85 % Carbon and white painted. Never to careful...

    Yes, but not exactly, one piece of a fishing trolling boom reinforced with carbon fiber / epoxy on the lower part (7 ft length), then above the Neil Pryde and the tyrnos.

    A few trips with our gear, but always ending the same way after the catch : a giant mess (and the lines directly to the trash). The rigging method with the main line on the bandit reel, and one or two rods with the lures is not functional. On the paper, it was a good idea, but not on the water.

    Thx, yes we're now rigging a single 130, doing both the main line and the fishing line ; we will release the bird with an aerial line in order to fight without it. Aerial because we do not want any trouble with the main line... Works great on the paper !
    The depth during trips in our area is between (greenstick and classic) 150 and 200 ft, never more. But giants also come to the shore line within 50 ft, but we never fish there ; too difficult, many reasons of course. Water is really nice offshore, but in the Loire estuary it's muddy, brown...
