    So on sport boats multiple times I've been told by the deck hand to fly line a bait with a 1/2 ounce. Now I'm curious on the terminology as well. But I think we all agree it's a really nice yellow! Congrats

    Yeah it's a workhorse of a reel for its size. I have to say, the carbontex drags make a big difference. All my reels have them. It's a cheap upgrade and we'll worth it. More stopping power and smoother operation under fast runs. I have 50lb braid and then 100 feet of 20lb mono topshot. The braid underneath allows me to fit way more line (12lb size equivalent) while still maintaining strength. When I said it was damn near spooled, that was an overstatement. It was probably only about half, but still made me jump!

    Based on how he felt lifting with one arm, I'd say he was around 40+. He was chubby!

    It's a really nice yellow, but it's probably closer to 25lbs. :D

    Nothing like a last second big surprise, well done. Funny thing about the wind as we were at the Tanner Bank and didn't have very much until 3pm and then only 10-12 knots. Must of been a coastal eddy?

    Based on what I usually curl at the gym, I'm pretty confident it was closer to 40.

    Ha ha ha. Well I'm sure you can more accurately tell by a photo than I could fighting it, holding it and cleaning it in person.

    Needless to say, I have a scale on the boat now. Next time I post a fish, I'll be sure to include a closeup of the scale.

    Where's the tanner bank? Wind was probably 10-14 knots where we were, from the start. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great either, ha ha.

    Dang, nice jelly! Sticking it out to the bitter end paid off well for you! Funny when those 11:59 bites arrive.

    Secondly, I vote that any sinker say 16 ounces or less could be considered flylining, depending on current and rigging. If you're a purist, and suggest any weight at all doesn't count, maybe go with Ray Cannon's term, flying the bait. Never really caught on, but them's the breaks. Or eschew bait entirely, and do the flyswatting thing. Although they use full sinking lines, sinking tips, and weighted flies when necessary, too. Apologies to flyswatters for the pejorative term. Flyswatters totally fucking rule.

    Good fishin'!
