Default Big Eye Tuna Almost a State Record!! See Pics.

My friends Hawaii said the Tuna showed up again and there was plenty of them. They catch these using live bait.

Thats a Black hole rod and Canyon EX30 with 100JB

Joe,
Here you go, the 30ex and black hole rod kicked ass, 212lb cow big eye tuna, 146lb yellowfin, 103lb yellowfin. The big eye we messed up on. the Hawaii state record 228lb. Our fish gutted and gilled was 212. We may have had the state record but that's the Way it goes. The tackle is working good for the tuna and all the fish were boated in 30min or less.

Tony.

Nice, is 16 lbs of guts and gills a reasonable expectation? I've never even seen tuna that size so I don't know.

Yeah I would say the guts and gills could add up to 20lb easy

Beautiful fish all of them - I am surprised that the state record eyeball is "only" 228 - would have thought much larger in those waters.

I love the long fins on the two Allisons. The 103 lber looks tiny compared to the other two. I am fascinated by how strong and small the black hole rods are. Hopefully I will have the extra cash to get one.

He may not have gotten the record, but I'm sure that was one damn good tasting fish. Nice catch!!
