Default Outboard Classic... 1st tuna

Not too much to report since we only caught 1 YFT. got pushed around alot by storms and never found the rip that ROFFs or Hiltons showed. really kind of surprised both were pretty wrong on those reports. after moving from a storm, we pulled up to a rig and 3min later we were hooked up to a tuna. missed the bite while fighitng this fish. still extremely happy with only catching this fish as it is a wall hanger. The fish went 158.8.

Aw hell, let's call it 160. I'm glad I wasn't on the rod!

Congrats on a beauty. Nice Allison fins.

Congrats on an awesome fish. Just as an FYI, there was a rip a mile or so south of na kika when we found it Friday afternoon, but it was moving very fast. We fished it towards the west, about 40 miles SW of nakika, and it moved about 15 miles during the course of the day on Saturday.

we were just south of the jetties...

caught it on a 50w. took him 1hr 45min to land the fish. at 15min in to the fight we had the swivel to the rod tip. we could see the lure and still couldnt see the fish. apparently the fish saw us because he took off for a while.

All the big ones we've caught come up abruptly after a few minutes and then it's "see ya". Long and brutal battle after that.
