Hey all, first post here. Haven't been out on the water the past couple of years (Moved to Dallas and back). Have been seeing the reports of Bluefin/Yellows on the full day trips and even on some 3/4's. Most of my experience comes from 3/4 day trips going for barracuda/sand bass/the occasional yellow at Catalina but that's about it. Most of my equipment is for what I consider mid sized fish and I'm not too sure how well it will handle the Tuna especially if we get into some better sizes (will post the reels/line we plan to bring below). To make it a little more interesting I'm taking a newbie with me.

Would appreciate any opinions on if we should perhaps start the newbie on something more mellow, and if we have the equipment suited for this type of fishing. Not entirely sure the size of Tuna they're into right now, but most pictures I've seen they look to be 15-40.

Reels/Line -
Penn GTO 220 - 30lb Mono
Okuma Pro CL 302l -30lb Mono
Shimano 6500B - 35lb Mono
Shimano Sea Spin 6500 - 30lb Mono

Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Edit : Hook suggestions would be extremely helpful as well
