I made a bit of a vid from the footage I got during last Saturdays epic bluefin bite. We caught 5 total (tagged 3, landed 2). Unfortunately missed the carnage of our quadruple hookup. Enjoy.

Not sure what others are using, I had my lures rigged with 200lb as had read somewhere that they can be line shy, my mate had his rigged with 300lb. All lures got hits so not sure it made much difference in our hit rate.
