First day in Cabo. Start day trolling. Catch football size yft on trolled skirt in school of spinner dolphin. Immediately nose hook google-eye and flat line behind boat, hook-up, 30 mins. later 80lb yft gaffed and in boat. Out comes OTI 60-80lb popping rod immediately hook-up, fight fish 2hrs 15mins on 20lbs of drag (set with scale) with 80# JB hollow core with 80# spliced in mono leader. See color 5-6 times and see 4 1/2 foot yft 5 feet down 20 yds behind boat once. Leader parts just above plug from abrasion of fishes jaw. I'm a big guy 6' 240lbs and I never let fish rest---line either coming on or going off. What about these 15-20min fights I've read about? I've boated AJs to 50lbs in 7-8 mins jigging but no way to land this fish quickly. This was my first fight with a big tuna, so is this what to expect? Only thing I would change would be to up leader #test and/or FC. Regardless got the tuna skunk off my back. No longer a tuna virgin!!!!
