    How do I get started? What do I need to know? Im willing to take the risk of losing a hand finger what ever. I hear guys catching giants on a hand line. I want to catch a 40 lbs yellow but you never no whats lurking. Any help would be great.

    Talk to seane on noreast. He used to fish commercially and one of this things he did was hand line tuna. I think he said the biggest he got was 800, but that might have been the boat.
