25 minutes.......

Trickier question is how fast can you get to the rail? These fights are won or lost in the first 30 seconds, either the fish makes it into the reef or it doesn't.

If you're at 40lb of drag with a 7ft rod you've got to deal with approx 140lb at the grip until you can get to the rail.

different size of monster fish but that sounds the way we fish here, 5.5ft and 6ft rods are perfect for panga use and also gives more leverage to the angler.

you said it before, just like Cedros in steroids, not a place to give line to the fish or "play" with the drag, its You Vs the fish
NZ sounds like a dream fishing trip

Saw that some guys were talking about using the RAIL--definite no/no by Kiwi standards. The reasoning behind this is that the spinning guys cant so why should you--infact on my 2 trips to the Kings, the mate told me that he would cut my line if the rod touched it but it was fine if I wanted to crush my hand---Got bloody knuckles to prove it. Man up, hit the gym, because a 90lb Kingie is going to do a serious thrashing on your back---Great Fun.

I'm kinda like "more power to you"; I'd love to see if it actually works in this fishery?

5 days of fishing. Day trips off the Coromandel Peninsula. Feb 25-29 2020. Need to finalize the booking within the next week. Please let me know if you're still interested.
