Say I hook a tuna and have drag at 18-20lbs how much line will a medium size say around 70lb YFT take on the initial run.

hooked on topwater......maybe 50yds unless its a pretty feisty fish. my avatar tuna went about 110....didn't take 100yds at 22-24lbs of drag if that helps. jigs or bait will be a bit more, but it shouldnt take too much.
