Tuna on the Mind

Flew out for a blue water expedition this morning with high hopes for dolphin and wahoo. Instead I found myself hooked up with a giant 130 + lb yellowfin tuna for two hours or so.  Pulling on this heavy piece of machinery left my gut scarred and black and blue. At the two hour mark I had the fish circling 15 yards under the boat stubborn as ever. With the engine prop coming into play I stop filming. Long story short the 30 lb test line snapped. I was so exhausted at the time I cannot say how. Maybe it just pulled itself to pieces or the line rubbed on the hull. Either way just another fish of a lifetime to haunt my dreams.
