Thread: What happens when you hook an 80lb+ tuna on a 20# setup

    Default What happens when you hook an 80lb+ tuna on a 20# setup

    A few buddies and I went on a 1.5 day trip out of 22nd Street Landing - Pescador.

    Fishing was scratchy... a few yellowtails at one stop and then we get on a school of bluefin. Most fish were 20-30# and were line shy. We were told to drop it down to 20# line, and luckily for me, I got hooked up. I put together a quick video of the trip.

    Thanks! I was definitely outgunned on that fish. A little bummed we couldn't bring it in, but at least my friend had experience pulling on a decent size fish :)
