Don't get me wrong I understand that they need to be fought hard so that they can't reach the wreck, but imo a penn senator with only 20 something pounds of max drag would not haul up a 40 pound tuna up for instance from a wreck in a couple minutes like you can an aj, Maybe it's a fight you gotta experience for yourself but based on what I've seen I don't get the big deal.

Have you ever caught an AJ?
