just got off the water after a marathon session off LJ. Left dana landing at around 530 and made all the bait we needed just off the jetty (6-10 in macs). headed out to the corner and drifted south to north a couple times w no real luck -marked plenty of bait and sea lions were in abundance. at around 2pm we decided to do one last drift a bit further southwest closer to the MPA boundary past the condo. we had 3 macs behind the boat , 2 fly lined and one dropper looped. about 5 min into the drift we start marking bait everywhere in ~80 FOW, within a few seconds both the fly lined macs were inhaled. i grabbed my rig ( shimano baitrunner 6000D on a penn mega power 6 foot overhead series II w 60 lb braid to 25lb floro). engaged the primary drag and the fish took off on several runs and was able to feel the violent head shakes of the suspected bruiser YT. after about a minute of fighting, the penn rod literally snapped where the reel is held into place. leaving me with a detached reel and peeling drag - obviously less than optimal situation... for the record this setup has landed me YFT BFT dodos and some solid jacks south of the border. sooo needless to say, this turn of events was both surprising and impressive. After a few moments of fumbling with the reel the hook popped right a long with my ego. Despite going home empty handed it was a good day and the seas were calmer than anticipated. Side note, considering im now in the market, does anyone have any spinning rod suggestions that would go well with the shimano baitrunner?
