We fished with Capt Jimmy the Greek in Cape Cod for giant today and we got two giant (99" and 85") today (Aug 30, 2015).
I was tempted to drop jigs, but decided not to because most giant there are over 500 lb. We used live bait We were gong to fight standup, but decided to fight wicked tuna style because of concern of low fuel.
Custom Black Hole Giant rods performed flawlessly. It took 50 minutes and 40 minutes using 40 - 50 lb drag.
