    Lost a Big Fish and More

    I had a pac bay 50 class butt fail this past year. Didn't even have a fish on just the pressure from dragging a manns stretch 50....and it broke below the reel seat. Would've lost the reel and everything if it wasnt clipped in. Pac Bay replaced it....but definitely makes you wonder.

    I have to say....that is the most pc account of that last bite that I ever could have imagined...You made me sound like a real gentleman!! For the readers at home, there were about 15 f-bombs dropped in the 3 seconds it took for the fish to swing back through the spread and grab the flat line...
