When I was getting advice on a spinning reel someone said that few tuna were caught on poppers. What was used ? Live bait, chunk ? Conventional reel or spinning. In So. Cal we do most of our fishing with conventional reels. I use a 665 accurate for deep jigging, and a 870 for suface iron. I can only afford one Stella right now moving is costing me alot, so I guess I need A popping size reel. 18000 ???, Best all around size ? ?.
