    It was mine. Talica and super seeker rod, lost near the tuna pens. Can't remember the spectra color. Wait... I've never owned that set up. Oh shit, the alarm clock is going off! :D

    You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar, as well as a model American. I tip my cap to you. Congrats on the fish as well!

    A. Good on you for actually picking up the line and not just leaving it there to wrap around someones prop shaft.
    B. What are the odds that there would still be a fish on that hadn't been macked by a sea lion?
    C. And you kept on pulling on that line after you'd already lost the fish.
    D. Satisfaction of returning the rod and reel still attached to rest of that line that you kept on pulling in hand over hand.

    Well done sir! Well done!

    Did you ask him how the entire rig wound up overboard?
    and how a 10# yt pulled 300 yards of spectra off the reel?

    Yesterday I lost my lucky tady 4/0 that I definitely shouldn’t have been fishing on a boat with 60 people. Caught my first yellowtail on it and probably another hundred after that. Repainted green and most of that chewed off. The jig next to me got spun around my line we started cutting. The other guy let go of my line while I hand lines his in. About 15 minutes later, I see my jig sitting on the bait tank and nearly shit myself. Tyler said someone hooked a nice yellow on bait and the jig was sticking out of it’s throat.

    Did the same thing in oside back in January. Unfortunately no rod and no fish. Exciting couple of minutes though. Good job

    The greatest miracle of all might be that the yellowtail didn't get eaten by a seal. I think the rod sank and got lodged on the bottom and the yellowtail pulled out all the line and was swimming in a 400 yard circle around the rod for 3 hours and somehow managed to avoid the dozen giant seals in the area. 15 minutes after I pulled in the rod we lost a bonito to a seal.

    This is probably obvious to everyone, but don't ever try to handline in a yellowtail with light spectra. I have cuts all over my hands and fingers. I was considering splicing the line onto another reel when I realized it was a fish and should've followed through with it
