When do you switch to low gear on a 2 speed to grind the fish in? After the first run?
When you can’t budge the fish in high.
Usually during the end of fight when the fish is laying on its side and you need more torque to bring the fish in
Once it settles down and you're in a tug of war. If it comes towards you get back in high... you want to be tight to the fish at all times. If the line isn't going out it should be coming in!
When you're getting your *** handed to you.
if it's big bluefin, straight up and down only
yup, as most have said, up and down, otherwise i stay in high speed
agreed when you can’t crank in high and the fish settles in. Last thing you want is a green fish charging the boat and your in low gear too early. Lately I’ve been fishing my tiburon auto shifts so I don’t have to do anything. Just turn the handle!
