    Life just threw you a memory.
    Wish I could remember such a thing.

    This was 25 years ago: Pre-digital camera, pre-braid, pre-disc drag, etc. so we "tried to chase it" but when it went straight down that was all she wrote. Fun while it lasted though.

    I have only been spooled once in 35 years of private boat fishing. Same situation. 60 to 80 lb class bigeye on 15# with a newell 229. Went straight down. Most reports of people getting spooled the fish did not go down though.

    I was on a 3/4 day with the Phoenix back in the day (now the Jig Strike I believe) when it was at the Hyatt Islandia. (Islandia sportfishing is history) John chased a 100+ with me on the bow. Once we got on top of the fish it gill plated me. Best 30 min of fun I ever had on a Penn 500. That reel held up and I don't know how. Some of the rock cod and yellowtail trips on that boat were epic.

    I too fished with John on the Phoenix. Sacks of Rockcod from 4 or 5 drops, wide open yellowtail on squid and Calico Cows on brown bait were epic also!

    Very nice yellow! And way to take a shot at the swordy! Definitely looked BIG. I don't care who you are or what gear you have when you see Elvis you pitch a bait. You wont forget anytime soon, hopefully next time he takes you for a ride!
