If it was even 250 it would've spooled that tiny reel.

You get towed when a fish is tired and can't make hard runs. A big tuna wouldn't get tired very fast, assuming your not using 30lbs of drag to begin with.

If you were on a large boat or stationary object, you'd be spooled by a 50 pound tuna or jack with that rig, but on a Kayak, you just would get towed around...while I doubt this fish was anywhere near 400 pounds, it could have been pretty big still.

I'm not saying this was 400 lbs but to those dogging him, you probably have never hooked a large tuna, secondly someone with enough experience catching tuna can gauge how big they are by the strength they have against the drag and rod. This was no small tuna by any means. He said it was an estimated weight. C'mon guys find something else to critique or get out there and catch one yourselves :)

Hooked, caught, sold, many tuna. This guy is a joke. He should join a knitting group.

+jacraig881 One CANNOT land a 400 pound Bluefin tuna on spinning gear like the one used. Fact is a 400 pound Bluefin would have spooled that gear in less than 2 minutes.

Wow normaly you have to put a fish on a scale to know what it weighs. This guy doesnt even need to see it.
FISHERMAN ALEC - 5 years ago
This guy is the biggest joke ever. That tuna was 100lbs if he was lucky. And that rod would of snapped if it was anything over 200lbs. Also if that was a 400 lb fish that shitty reel he had would of melted immediately

RDPeast158 I like the way you think but I cannot believe you just called a Van Staal a Cabo!! I believe that is a 250 Van Staal.

Looks like the fish of a lifetime.  Quite a sleigh ride.  Awesome fish.  Too bad you were woefully unprepared with a little spinner.  If you had used a larger conventional with like 100 lb. test maybe you'd have landed that beast.

I think he was doing fine until he got the pole arced over so far it put too much tension on the line. Question is, what was he going to do with if he got it to the boat? If he could kill it, he could lash it aside, but otherwise even if it tires out it's just going to be him and the fish laying there 4 miles offshore. It would have been nice if a big boat could have come along and help him land it. What a ride.
RDPeast158 - 9 years ago
For you to say that everything this fisherman has done wrong is moronic. First, to hook u to a BFT in a kayak is a pretty amazing feat. Second, that is an offshore cabo spinnin rod built to withstand the power of a BFT. Last, he's enjoying the ride. Fish on!

everything went wrong with this hook up. first, u never wanna hook a 400lb tuna on a kayak. second, this guy is using a spinning reel. and last, this guy never has control of the tuna at all.

Sorry, But I did not see any Tuna in that video. How can you say it was a 400 lb. Bluefin Tuna, when it snapped you off.

Epic. I hope I get such an opportunity someday.

Well that isnt a hobie. 24km (~15miles) is definetly possible but not exactly a short peddle. my gps says my revo average between 3.5 to 4 mph with turbo fins at a pretty brisk pace (no current or wind). I more realistic pace at that distance would be closer to 3mph
Alisha - 9 years ago
That's not far, around 24km I have done that in my Hobie Revolution 13 kayak without any support.

Xdog40 - 9 years ago
Cool as it is to hook up from a kayak...4.5 hours is too long to fight a fish, it's basically torture. Would you like to be hooked in your jawbone, terrified, and fighting for your life for 4.5 hours? I personally would not. Think about it...
