Just seen this on the news:




Any idea what gear he would use?  I'm thinking that the charter boat had a small crane on it and he was using that, although he may have been using a Steel hauser cable (not sure about breaking strain) and winch hook.


I would love to have been there when he brought it to the side of the boat though.

Now that's a big bloody fish!


They use rod, reel and line for Bluefin, which can go much larger, so the hook and line story is definitely feasible.


Imagine what he was thinkin while fighting that monster.
