John, Dick, and I headed offshore last Saturday. We were looking for some early season tuna. We did catch two micro bluefin tuna. We also jumped off a large mahi and landed a smaller one. Pro Tip: Preset your drags with a scale when pursuing large pelagic fish like tuna or marlin. A general guideline should be a strike drag setting of 20 percent of the line breaking strength. As an example, for 50 pound line the strike drag should be about ten pounds. This is just a guideline and sometimes you may want more drag (such as for large tuna) or less drag (such as for white marlin.)
