Ryan and Tom landed bigeye in 130 -160 lbs range caught on jigs within 10 minutes by using heavy drag even though they used long 7'9'' and 8' jigging rods and 3/0 size jigging reels. It confirms my belief that light drag kills you, not the size of reels or length of rods as we can use the rail of the boat.

I was on the Jamaica last year in late September on the west wall of the Hudson and we got slammed by a school of eyeballs at first light, they spooled a number of reels but one guy managed to get one to gaff that weighed 270 or so. powerful fish
