this^^^ I was on this trip and couldn't get bit on 80.
I got 4 bites on 60. Only one bit through and another sawed off by someone at color. These fish are mean and agree 80 would be better, but just wasn't working for me either.
Unfortunately I had the wrong rod and it was bottomed out. This is why the fight lasted so long. I am looking at the Phenix hax 780x2h to pair with now for a trip next week. Suggestions are welcome.
I know I should be using a reel more suited to the task, but I am not a long range...
Sunset station has great parking. In Henderson, so closer to mead. Plenty of outside parking.
I park the boat on top floor of structure that has electrical outlets to charge my trolling motor batteries.
They also have security in bicycles patrolling all the time.
