Caught a 15 pounder using the tail of a minnow.

Little tunny, or Fat Alberts as they are called quite often on the East coast, can be landed with surprisingly light tackle from pier or boat if two things are remembered: Use a light initial drag setting, keeping this lightning fast fish from popping the line at the strike, and then let him run. Albert will usually stop and turn within one hundred to one hundred fifty yards, and can then be pumped back in.
