600lb giant tuna caught

On Friday we headed out early in the morning and got to the bank by 630am. Around 30 minutes later, without marking or seeing a single fish, our line went off.  Luke and Ryan Stevens jumped on the reel and battled the fish first. After about 40 minutes we were able to get a good gauge on how big the fish was as it showed itself at the surface. The fish then dove and it was a matter of just lifting the tuna from 150 feet down. We harpooned the fish around 8:40am and got the fish to the boat 10 minutes later..
