Finally got the opportunity to go offshore for some tuna and put my gear to use! long story short, great trip with a great group of guys, landed my 1st tuna (yellowfin), though a shorty, and just overall experienced a great time. Mine was a little football around 12-15#s, step dad had the winner at around <30, and my brother had his at around 15-20ish. Found out last minute it was a tuna trip and was a little worried my Lexa400 and Californian would be overpowered but they held up extremely well. Casted irons a mile, no backlashes, did well with live bait. No complaints at all. A buddy’s dad, landed a decent sized schoolie on his 300hd on an M1 inshore and totally backed up my reasoning on why I need a 300 sized reel lol. Soooo I’ll be purchasing another lexa soon haha. Plus, you can’t beat that sunset and moonlit sight of our city.
