LMAO All hale the bamboo pole!!! That's incredible, some of those guys are even wearing hard hats! Guess they are the one that have been hooked in the head by the guy standing next to you or beat upside the head by a 70lb tuna.

What type of rods did they use?
The lure they showed at the end ... was it a Japan Feather Jig?

I was criticized for using long 8' rod for tuna jigging years ago and I was telling that it is not rod length,but the heavy drag which matters.
They didn't believe me when I said I could land a 100 lbs tuna within 5 - 7 miinutes with 8' jigging rod.
I think nobody quetions me anymore after seeing the video. :)

I remember my uncle showing me this video when I was 12 after coming home from catching perch at the local creek. That might have been the day that I decided I was gonna fish for the rest of my life.
