Tom's reel can handle anything thrown at it within it's wheelhouse. Next time try hooking into that mako for the ultimate test, lol.
Thanks for showing us how it's done.
You must be exhausted, go get some rest and then process those fish, then mark a box with my name on it and finally, to the post office it goes. Cheesy

Nice haul Ted, looks like you had a great day. Also good to see the Maxed Out - Cortez Conversions Jigmaster doing so well catching what it was built for - albacore. At the risk of being nosey, which gears are you running in it?

Mike

 Hi Mike, I did skip that part. The reel has stock 4/1 gears and 3 stack of ht-100's, dd bridge and steel sleeve, steel yoke, Jack. It worked flawlessly and smooth thru entire drag range. Several of the larger tuna could easily rip line off if they got the head turned out of the death spiral

Pulling in 20+ albacore in a single day it would take me a month to recover.  Well done Ted.

 I take my fish home whole and packed in commercial salt ice. It'll take me a few days to loin them, then off to the pressure cooker. Impossible to locate any canning supplies right now, so I'll be canning a bunch in retort bags. Same type of foil type packages you see in store bought tuna. These will also be much easier to ship without worry of glass breaking. My chamber sealer is set up to do retort pouches or regular vacuum seal bags
