The benefit of fishing with braid and enhanced drags...overlap coverage. Any one setup can go UP or DOWN 10lbs in line rating by just swapping out the top shot and adjusting to the corresponding drag.

Hence just taking a lineup of 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, and 80 lb setups covers 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80, and 100 lbs. Significantly reduces the need to open up a reel out at sea...and reduces your odds of becoming the next "Dieter" or having some deckie wreck your reel.

mine is better i just grab my other outfit and continue fishing. to prevent misunderstanding in the future the reel was never opened. and if my memory serves me well i think i'm one of the first to use this phrase "just in case", 2014 AT.com SOA...

When a deckie has cleared your tangle, says "Here", and tries to hand you your rod, NEVER...say "Wait a sec."

Around Thanksgiving the guy fishing next to me said "Wait a sec." and watched as the deckie (anxious to get to work helping someone else, I'm sure) let go of the rod and his $400 rig went deep diving, including a brand new Penn Fathom LD 2 speed on its maiden voyage.  Angry words were spoken...

A RULE on a boat with a deckie is to say got it, Usually gone over in the galley on the way out with all the passengers when they're going over the safety and trip plan. No excuse for that for the deckie or the fisherman. That's on both of them

I can beat that -- as far as incredibly stupid decisions, rather than accidents:

While their "opposable" status is questionable, they were, most certainly, "digestable" . . . LOL !

I know they're probably "protected" but, if it were me, "Scarface" would have been "sleeping with the fishes" !

We were in Costa Rica for a few weeks. Miles of white sandy beaches so of course I'm fishing with a 9' graphite rod. Well there's lightning hitting not far from me and I'm thinking I'm the tallest thing around holding essentially a lighting rod in my hand. Time to hit the cabana for a cool one! Got lucky on that one but what does a guy from So Cal know about lightning? My wife ways viedoing it too,could have made this page.
