About bloody time i can tick off a proper tuna from my list!!

About bloody time i can tick off a proper tuna from my list!!

On a very very quiet steep point trip a month ago and 3 entire days of spinning for a lot of lost fish and a shark mack and a mack tuna i finally managed to get a hookup i stayed connected to on the dying light of the day. my first decent tuna species of a good size and to pick it up after such hard work and perserverance made it a whole lot sweeter. caught on a 5000H catalina, 11ft assassin sierra 2xh rod, green goblin 5" mack bait and 50lb JDB x8 braid.

 off the cliffs maybe 7m up, cast as far as you can and wind as fast as you can haha repeat until you get a hookup. in this case it took 3 days of casting to get this 5am to 7pm with maybe 2-3 hours break in the middle of the day.
