I have 500 yards of 50# on the one reel and a similar amount on the 65# reel with stacked spectra, so I had no issues.Line capacity was not an issue?
One young guy on his first Guadalupe trip hooked a large one that nearly spooled him and absolutely destroyed his avet. His reel smelled like a semi truck with Smoked brakes going down the Grapevine. It was all over and done with in about 45 seconds. I suspect there are a few much larger fish around.
