I haven't landed a 100lb pelagic- yet. And only sailed the AI once!
However I'll take your compliment if it will get me on the Hobie fishing team.
I know the AI ama are larger, but so far I have had no troubles fishing with Sidekick. When I test sailed the AI I brought along a pole and waved it pretty much around the ama so not to concerned about it.
In fact after he saw my Sidekick, one of the top fisherman here, Reggie, added a set of home made ama rig to his Prowler that is wider than Sidekick expklicitedly for fighting larger fish.
Potential mast interference is my major concern. Why I keep asking guys how fast they can get it down. I'd really like to see Hobie comeup with some sort of universal joint and sleeve system to do quick lowering. Would work well for bridges also.
In the meantime how guys fish the AI under sail is high on my interest list.
