Hi Mark,

Just wanted to let you know how the Toro Tamer that I bought last month is doing. I was at the launch ramp at Shelter Island about 5 weeks ago and I talked to a fisherman that was getting off a private vessel. We struck up a conversation about the local bluefin fishing and he mentioned that he had luck with the popper that was being sold at Charkbait. When I got home that evening, I went online and ordered about a half-dozen poppers of various sizes and colors. I have been out at least 6 times trying to catch one of the large BFT but I haven’t had the luck with finding a school of fish that would stay within casting distance of the boat. At least, not until this Wednesday. At mid afternoon we glassed a group of terns working about 2 miles away and when we finally reached them, we could see 150-200 pound BFT jumping out  of the water. After chasing and following the school for 45 minutes, the tuna finally popped within casting distance from the boat. I threw out the Toro Tamer in the Skippy color past the boiling fish and retrieved it through the foaming fish. Once I reached them, one of the tunas struck the popper and after a 20 minute battle, we landed the fish. It taped out at 226 pounds (71” long and 50.5” at the girth). One of my friends had borrowed the popper a few weeks earlier and caught two tunas weighing 80 and 130 pounds. I hope you will be getting more of the Toto Tamers soon so I can stock up just in case I lose this one. Here is a photo of the fish.

Well, the crazy bite has been a great one and I'm very glad that you got your fish Frank.  Toro ran out, they have more poppers being madenow but they won't be done for a couple months. I'd really thought that I'd planned our inventory well, would have stock all summer. Wrongl Sold out of two sizes and one almost done. I've scrambled to get in some other poppers for our shops, not as nice as the Toro's but beggars can't be choosers on this bite. Most manufacturers were caught with too little inventory. Unique bite and one to remember.

Great Stuff<

Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)

We do apologize for any inconvenience this policy creates. But, it's the only way we've found to post an email address on-line and not receive so many solicitations from some family member of a deceased "Nigerian" leader trying to move great sums of  $ out of the country...
