Re: Carbon tuna guns

I have seen those beasts, do you know much about them? I am interested in how they track compared to a pipe gun, and effective shooting range.

Re: new to freshwater: living in FoCo Colorado

Picking up this thread again now that it's officially summer. Who's game for a socially distanced dive in cold, murky water within a 3hr radius from Fort Collins?

Re: My worst (not safety related) experience ever

Mistakes happen, and IMHO you couldn't have prevented this one. Such a tight slot only makes sense when H&L fishing. No way I would be able to confidently gauge the size before pulling the trigger. ...

Re: Carbon tuna guns

I hear you, I have heard first hand bad stories about the old mech in the OB. I believe they fixed the mech now.

Re: Carbon tuna guns

Awesome, very good points Mikel! I do use both hands as you describe to track the big pipe gun, but not always keep it close enough to my body.

Do you think effective shooting range is much...

Re: Carbon tuna guns

thanks for your insights Mikel. I got the aluminum version of that gun (30mm round pipe so it's heavier than your regular aluminum pipegun) with an 8mm shaft and it's amazing how little recoil it...

Sweet boat! Need to see some saltwater action :p

I don't get to go to your neck of the woods often so that makes a pre-trip planning get together a bit harder. I can still bring some FoCo beers...

Great svivian!
Sorry for the slow response, I'm not getting posts notifications anymore and don't know how to fix it.
