150# yellowfin tuna off Miami

Post by Poseidon10/31 »

Got this bad boy on Monday, right out front Key Biscayne in 130' on a gog. After over an hour fight on 20# mono and 40# leader, the fish rose to the surface, we chased it down and I harpooned it in the head off the bow at 5 knots. Estimated at 150# by a commercial tuna captain. I didn't get a length and girth, but I did get some soy sauce and wasabi on the ride home!

May well have been a world record on that tackle. I know they're caught from time to time but never heard of one on 20 pound test.

That a frigging feat dude! Well done!
