There seems to be a lot of BIG Blackfins around right now. Unfortunately, I'm losing too many boat side in the process of trying to get them in the boat. This one was 17.5#, but 2 lost at boat side were bigger. One pulled the hook and the other broke my 60# fluorocarbon leader. Still.... A lot of tuna coming home and all of the neighbors are getting fresh caught tuna. Bled out and iced immediately.....the good stuff.
