2019-10-28: Yellowfin Tuna!


I caught my first ever yellowfin tuna in San Diego in late October 2019.  28lbs of fish beat me up for 9 minutes but it was great fight! Check out the video of the battle here:

This was such a great experience (as you can probably tell from my excitement at the end). I had some great tips going into this trip from a friend on how to maximize my chances and I’m happy it worked out. I can’t wait for the next one!

Equipment used:

Daiwa Saltiga 15L on a Phenix PSW 808MH with 65lb braid and 20lb flouro leader.
