    Thanks guys.
    @spineyman, that fish kick my butt:) :) .
    Lack of exercise on my part and light drag setting didn't help.

    word of advise.
    exercise at least 3 months prior to your trip, and prepare your self to do battle with big fish.

    I think because of the tournament it added more pressure to bring this fish in , TJ definitely fought this fish the right way and with the right drag setting , 1 1/2 hour fight on popper and brought the winning fish in is darn good , here some more pics.

    TJ, look at the bright side. Your alive, the tuna is dead. :)
    One more point. I think that tuna weights more than you.
