Got my first big Bluefin. Big for me anyway. Got double hook ups and landed both. Kept the one and gave the other a healthy release.
Tiagra 80 worked.
Thanks to a bunch of reading on DEForum and watching Wicked Tuna it all worked out.

And of course the one that got away first..... likely double the size. Stretched out about 700 yards then the main line broke after about 25 minutes. Oh well.
