You fish, I wish. Excellent job, Cody. It's often that way at Catalina for yellows at the Vs. Bite at first light, over in an hour. If you snooze, you lose - and I have been snoozin' a lot lately!
Pm'd yaSee now I don’t find that true, when long range fishing, if I hook a fish that starts spooling me I put my rod 90% or almost there so I get maximum bend out of the rod and there is maximum drag coming off the total set up. Which rod brand are you dealing with?
