Bub, Brian, Doak, Barrett & Andrew from Texas joined us aboard GOOD DAY a few days back Tuna fishing in Costa Rica as part of their Stag Doo/Bachelor party celebrations for Doak’s upcoming marriage.
The guys put 3 Tuna in the boat up to about 45lbs but we lost/missed many more Tuna & also pulled the hook on a Sailfish. The story of the day was the 1 hour 45 minute fight with a Tuna on a medium weight Spinning rod that ALL 5 OF THE GUYS took a turn fighting! At one point the Tuna 100% emptied the 400 metres of braid from the Spinning Reel which has never happened to us on a Tuna before. The fish then proceeded to snap the rod & finally the 80lb Flurocarbon leader. Who knows how big it was but we were clearly undergunned for this fish!
Tuna landed = 3
Broken Rods = 1
