I made a bluefin jigging trip out of Cape May, NJ yesterday. We were at the right place at the right time and tuna were in biting mood. We released many 100 lbs class bluefin tuna on jigs. I hooked up a big tuna when I was experimenting my new Shimano 500g Jigwreck rod on Saragosa 18000F reel with Japanese style jigging. The fish made a spectacular run at amazing speed though I had 22 - 24 lbs drag on my reel. This was the first time any tuna made such a run since I caught a 283 lbs yellowfin out of Puerto Vallarta years ago. My reel got almost spooled and we had to chase the fish. But unfortunately the drag became lock-down drag. Eventually we lost the fish under the boat when split ring attached to the hook got opened. Before the incident, the Saragosa reel performed beautifully with 100 lbs class tuna. I used the reel out of box and find out what caused the problem. Anyway, I feel that any reel couldn't have survived after such a long and fast run except Stella, Saltiga or Twinspin.
