I think i would be a little further from the edge than that,did you end up landing or see what was at the other end looks like a good fish.

Leverage

Mon, 2008-09-15 20:13

How's the leverage working against him there. A lot more pressure on the angler than the fish.

Great pic.

major Hookups

Tue, 2008-09-16 09:08

I get hookups like that several times each trip out. I have never landed one though and I can guarantee I will be making a new rig after each one. One of these days the plug will come out!

This guy can have this spot all to himself. If I need a fish that badly I will use silverbait at Kailis Bros.

Cheers, Vince

check the angle between the alvey and the first guide!!! those long rods are painful to watch i remember reading an article in wangler where Gary Wotherspoon did some load tests of surf rods and the pull on the fishes end was like 2.1kg and the pull on the anglers end could be 15kg or something like that !!
