No doubt about that. Kinda just making a point. And if you were on a sport boat, you'd definitely want to have heavier gear. That way you don't waste peoples time if the fish moves, or break off on their gear, etc.I'm assuming you're referring to the post where the guy wanted to know if he should bring his bass rods on a tuna fishing trip. I think that most of us said that he should bring them but also have some heavier gear on hand as well. It's great when you already have a boatload of fish and there are only 2 of you fishing to bust out the light tackle just to have some fun, but if you only fish with a bass rod and 8 pound test all day you are going to bust off a lot of fish and any fish you land is gonna take a LONG time to reel in. I'll bet you anything that guy and his kid put fish on the boat with the heavy gear before even thinking about bringing out the bass rods. I'm not saying it wouldn't be fun, cause it would. But you wouldn't start a day of bass fishing with an ultralight spinning setup. You might break it out if you've already caught 50 slots and are getting bored of horsing them into the boat in 2 seconds. JMHO.
