256 LB Big Eye Tuna on OBX 400 Jigging Rod



Report for this trip written by Sami:

For the past 3 years we've been trying to put a trip together to target Big eye tuna but with the lack of anglers & consistency it was hard to pull the trigger, Oregon Inlet yellow fin tuna bites was red hot this year with some mixed in Big Eye Tuna in between.
We checked the weather on Tuesday and made a phone call to set up the trip for Sunday, the excitement was on everybody's faces, the groups consist of Evan, Raymond, Paul, Heng, Fei and I.
We drove the night and was greeted by first mate George followed by Captain Ned at 4:15 AM
The Ocean was full of life, bait was all over the place and the presence of pilot whales can be seen everywhere, we started blind casting close to the whales and sure enough our lures got hammered by yellow fin tuna, our mission was to put a bend on the El Maestro with a descent size yellow fin tuna but all we got were the smaller fish, it seems like the big body of fish moved, the action start fading away, later in the morning Captain Ned marked a good concentration of fish on his fish finder, and they didn't seem like small fishes, Evan and I were next to each other jigging and the sound of the fish finder was going off like a disco party, I said to Evan it is going to happen and I shouted eat my jig, within a second Evan get slammed on the jig, Game on.
The first run was amazing and steady and all of a sudden it became very moderate giving you the feeling of a small fish, for a moment everybody though it is a small fish but seeing that initial run first I was sure it is a Big Eye and I told Evan right away it is a Big Eye, Evan gave his all with his new Saltywater Tackle OBX 400 that he just picked up before the trip, what a day to break in your new rod!
After 15 minutes battling Evan had to ask for help and I did not hesitate for a second, after another 5 minutes we saw the fish and I knew exactly what was going to happen, another run for deeper water, 10 minutes and the fish was at the boat side with the gaff stuck on its face, celebration beyond expectation, cheers and jubilation Woo Hoo, a fat 76 inch long with a 52 inch girth hit the deck, 256LB!!

why they killing these beautiful Fishes .. shame really .. let them live
their lives 

Author Jmichael Isbell (1 month)
This is sport fishing, or at least supposed to be---and you guys are young
and strong--you can see that. So, "taking turns" especially with the top
of the line tackle you have, is totally unsporting. If the fish "beats
you" break off, don't hand to your buddy, my Gosh. If you are not
interested in sport, why not just harpoon them, or long line them--this is
not cool. This creature is fighting for its very life, while you are going
home to have a beer--man up and let em go if you can't cut it.

poor thing :( 

Author Jmichael Isbell (1 month)
PS, next time why not let 3 or 4 guys "take turns", then you won't even
need to break a sweat--wouldn't that be cool????? Then you can all yell
"yeahhhhhhhhh" even louder, cause you will have more breath; you give
"sport fishing" a bad name guys.

Watched a video and from since then youtube taints my page with a lot of
hunting videos; man killing animals/sea life for bait, sport, money, and
fun. Sadly, everyone is doing it and soon we are going to leave our sea
waters barren. We are eating every and anything from the ocean and that's
scary....soon they will be nothing left.
