Trip report from sales manager Jason - First Longtail Tuna from the kayak – After many hours on the water last season trying to land a Northern Bluefin (Longtail Tuna) with no success I finally landed one this season.

Here’s the report, full video below also.

Raymarine Dragonfly Pro sounders have a new transducer with the cable emerging from the front. This increases length significantly but our standard mounting kit allows it to fit the Profish Reload and GT. The secret: don't lock the Raymarine sliding mount fully forward. Allowing the transducer to slide on its mount lets it locate in the socket in the Tackle Pod, the tight fit ensures it doesn't move in use. Read on for more instruction
The new Raymarine Dragonfly Pro series sounders will fit the Reload and GT Tackle… more

The question of which rudder blade concept is better: the short Angler style or the longer KS system has created plenty of discussion. Unfortunately there's often more to this simple seeming question than many posing the questions or offering answers realize.
