Actually lost a nicer one when I passed it to the wife to play, she was not bowing fast enough and the hook opened. A 1/4 oz yellow lead jig was the ticket. When they hit it was ripping and then the ultra fast runs of 20-30yds, 3 -4 runs and then they were done. Was using heavy spinner with 40lbs floro as we had a ton of Almaco & Horseeye at the start, they were not line shy at all but all hit 40-50 yds from the boat. I also had a 30 lb class Penn Travel Rod. It definitely was fun but not very sporting at all. Next time definitely take the 4500 baitrunner with 12# line and see how we match up. The capt had a 14# YT a month ago but was not IGFA. Kil may go there again in the late fall. Interested?
