So I’ve been land based shark fishing out of Tampa for two years now. I’ve been running a Tiagra 80w as well as two penn slammer 10,500’s.
Last year I broke 500lb wire multiple times likely due to kinks and broke mustad 3X hooks. I’ve now dialed up my leader and hooks to unbreakable and just bought a tiagra 130. First night landed a 11ft hammer.
My question is about drag. It was about an hr fight on strike set at 60lbs.
I’m running 200lb hollow core and 200lb topshot. I want to absolutely slam these fish with drag. Has anyone pushed 80-100lbs of drag on a big fish from the hook set to the leader? What’s the likely hood of the 200lb braid snapping if it’s new. Thanks, got the 130 that I’ve always wanted to I figured that I would lock n load!
