There are ten reasons to consider when choosing your next fishing reel.

The first is to pick a reel you like — The other nine reasons don’t matter.

these guys had plenty of opportunities to beat me. the money obviously is never an issue for me.  i would have preferred to see all of these fish landed. you have to set the drags 30% at the start and be willing to push the drags to 50% if needed.  otherwise it will be a stand off, and these fish will eventually spit the hook. anything more than 20 minutes is trouble.   Undecided

 Thanks Alan,very good tip on the drag setting. Not sure if you've done a tutorial on how to properly set your drags with a scale, but would
  you be willing to do a video on how that's done? I'm not sure if you have the reel mounted on rod and pull slowly,fast or what
  exact details are involved?

Single speed Torium with 6:1 gears... no wonder the deckhand had to pull on the line!  I guess they didn't have permits to be within 12 miles of land.

I was bewildered by that. Completely wrong rod under that reel or something? Seemed to be incapable of lifting the fish, no recovery in the blank.
