    I don't know Red. 10k size reel on a 350 lbs yft? I mean he said it was never past half spool but still, i don't know one who spool their 10k reel with a 100lbs line. BUT, again. my tuna fishing experience is very limited ...so maybe it can be done.

    We fish for bluefin with Stella’s and normally fish 20k with an aftermarket spool for extra line capacity. It will normally take an hour and 5 miles to bring one in...

    Ask Geebz42... that dude will attempt a super cow on the 10k or VanStaal...

    I don't recommend ask the captain these questions.

    They usually cranky, look you over with hairy eyeball then next time put you on the boat is full list...

    So a 10k Stella model 2013 can’t wrestle a tuna that big ?

    I think Pierre said it was a 500g hopper jig rod.

    a 10k with a 16k spool and you might have a chance! All depends on you and your ability to fight the fish without breaking him off and making sure your drag is set right
