First, those are assumptions. Second, have you never been on a fish and got to that point where you say ok, it's him or me and lock down the drag? That's what's called fishing. Passing the rod around and high fiving after everybody on the boat pulls on the fish is called being a pussy. Seems like every couple weeks there's a story on the interweb about a big catch where the rod was passed around and everybody on the boat pulled on it. It's bullshit. Respect the sport.

Your an idiot. A 100lb class BFT was landed out at 9mile bank, that's great for all of us to have a chance at these fish in our waters so close to shore and all you do is get on here bitch how it was done. Who gives a shit. When you have your opportunity do it how you want but until then congrats to the guys who put the fish on the boat.

I just don't like that this made the news. Already there has been an increase in new people signing up on BD to post about wanting to be a boat Ho.

Can't imagine how many more rental rods will be crowding the local party boats with every joe blow thinking they can jump on a 1/2 or 3/4 boat to land tunas. Between the groupon boats and now this I am sticking to private boats this year with exception of my 3 day trips.

And also avoiding intense Rambo fishing googans.

Hey guys I was the one who passed the rod off, after 6 hours of fighting this thing with the drag maxed out my body felt like shutting down. Call me a pussy all you want but the fish was landed and I have a great story to tell. =)

And an incredible story and fish to boot!!!

WTG Colin, I'd have done the exact same thing given the situation.....call me pussy too!!!

I was driving the boat that dropped off the angler that helped land the fish. Yes, the fish was foul hooked and had a very large purple rapala in its mouth. Head down,and on 60 lb and a yellowtail special, 4.0 penn. The rod was too stiff and had worked the angler to death. Collin T. Stalemate comes to mind, since gaining line on a fish this size is nearly impossible with his set up. No belt, long rod , and 60. Needless to say, not a world record set up, and no reason to pull a Zane Gray and fish pull till midnight ! Now if he was on bait and say 30lb, then yes, don't even come near my boat or I will shoot you. This could be a world record ask please don't ask to help me!! Thank you for asking, but I'll take my chances and skill to the grave for this fish. But not this fish, and I would have let Brett R board my boat any day to help land this fish from hell. Christ I'm worked and hungry, and need a beer! We boarded the boat, and started to help, back down some, pulled , more moves, pulling, and finally to gaff at 5:30. Missed it and the water exploded with a thousands gallons of air and spray. Totally knarly like a long range trip. Collin, please buy a long gaff, because your hand gaff would not have cut it. Also, always swing at the head. We missed the fish and back down it went. This is a bad fish! Btw, an 80lb bluefin can fight harder that a 150lb one. They are angry! Finally back to gaff and Brett gaffs it, Collin with the second hook and it's on the boat. Great job to Collin for hanging in there to land a fish of a life time. Now go get a nice troll set up! Also, you did the right thing, because you had no chance at any IGF records. It fishing, and with fishing comes friends! It was tremendous experience for all and to be at the 9 looking at downtown Sam Diego was radical. I've ran hundreds of trips down below, and have never seen fish so close in this capacity. Truly epic! Congrats to Collin T for the incredible display of luck and triumph. That was awesome!
Ahui Hoi ! And smooth seas!

The fish inhaled the entire lure. When it hit the deck, it exploded again and thrashed hard. Pretty impressive after an 8 1/2 hour fight.

How long was the rod the angler was using? 7 ft? Or longer? I still can't get my head around a 100lb tuna on 60 lb line for eight hours.

2 guys pulled on this fish. 3 of the hooks were pulled straight. Yes, they pulled hard! The rod was to long and stiff. They tried the rail, the squat and let the swell pull, the knee on the rail and rod over the other knee, or vise versa, and the let the boat pull trick. His head was angled down with that rapala and the fish would not circle as usual. It came up like a seabass, and bailed down deep. It was Weird, cause I saw this pectoral come out like a billfish, and then it went back down. Not your typical capture!

agree with the 'man that musta hurt' posts.
our 60 lb BFT was gaffed in 20 minutes on 30lb mono last season.

Even the TV show - wicked tuna doesn't have the 800 lb bluefin on the clock that long. Was this really 8 hours fair hooked?

Not sure if I'm reading this right.

Congrats 100% around - nice fish!!! just .. like ... wtf?

No shame in getting help..GF hooked 45lb bluefin last week on 30lb. We are talking a pretty strong ER nurse that works out and been fishing all her life. After 1.5 hours and the DH kidding her about putting her purse down and fishing hard she was spent DH pulled on it for a while. Look on his face was priceless when it tore off 150yds of line at deep color like it was nothing after 1.5 hours.Some fish just refuse to die, sounds like this was one of them... good job

I like how everybody thinks that using the term "googans" is all of a sudden cool. I'll stick with kooks, I believe that was our term from the beginning.....not one stolen from the East.
