It's raining here this morning and I just tied a leader onto my Striped Bass setup to see if I could find some early schoolies. The reel is a Stradic 5000 FH and the rod is a G.Loomis PBR843S. The key specs are: Reel: 240 yards of PE3, max drag 25 lbs. Rod: 10-25 pound So I'm thinking why can't I catch a 100 pound Bluefin tuna on this setup. Here's my plan (okay, not really): -10' 50 pound leader, Mid knot connection to the PE3, 42 pound actual breaking strength -Drag set to 18.75 pounds well within Shimano's spec so that's not a problem , bottom of spool drag just before the line breaks would be 35 pounds -Spool will be iced on long runs -Rod angle will be kept shallow so that it doesn't break -Boat motor will be kept running in case I get too near the bottom of the spool -Fish will be lifted during the final spiral with the Ksong back saving (in this case rod saving) method What is going to keep this plan from succeeding?
