    Do you know about how many fish were hooked? Wondering about the hookup and casualty rate

    I’d say 16 were hooked. 9 landed. Smallest fish on deck was 50lbs. I would fish nothing less then 50 pound.

    Well done. Just wondering, does anyone anymore wear the belt with the receiver for the rod? I see lots of shots with guys taking on fish this big, on their hands and knees, or rod tucked up under their arm, or in the nads--does anyone use one of those belts anymore?

    Awesome Got em in the Medula. Curious what knot you used for the mono to spectra. I use the uni to uni with great success, but have heard otherwise. Fun sized fish for sure.
