so last night I was piddling with tackle and an interesting thought came to mind. I have read here how delicate these spj rods are and how they're not designed to lift fish, etc. I have watched videos where guys are letting the fish work off the drag, maintaining a relatively low rod angle, nowhere near a high-stick condition. I see line choices in the 30-40# category. kinda sketchy if you're still trying to follow the 30% rule and tight to a 100# fish. So here's the question- How do you get a positive hookset without destroying the rod or breaking the line? In virtually all other techniques (circle hooks notwithstanding), the rod is used to set the hook. it is also probably the most violent action the rod will ever see, which apparently the SPJ rods cannot handle. So how do YOU do it?
