STB, great thread...good job on your persistence to catch and record these fish, many hours spent I can imagine.


The Dr. questioning the Broadbill eating live bait of 10+ kilos?
Yes....witnessed (longlining for tuna) many large broadbill swallowing 1mtr long big eye tuna, aswell in the broadbill's belly was found a large squid larger than 1mtr.

(Inside the tuna's stomach found the squid bait used for the initial target).

Please keep us posted on your progress with your 'hydraulic powered' reels.

FYI have a look at, they have an online store and you may find gear there you are interested in.
