Default Spooled by what?

I was trolling a medium ballyhoo about 2 miles off Navarre Beach last Saturday and got got absolutely SMOKED by a unknown monster. I use dual Okuma Avenger 90's and the reel that got spooled had over 400yds of 20lb mono on it. The fish went the same blistering speed from take to the end of my line. I'm leaning away from a shark or big king, because they seem to slow down and stop for a little after a few hundred yards to recover, but this guy never stopped. I could not turn this fish...it was like I caught a powerboat Think it was a flipper or something else?? Anyone else ever had this similar experience? If you can't tell, its bothering me. I never lose fish!!! haha

Are you sure there weren't any boats nearby? That has happend to me a few times...even once when fishing from a pier. Maybe the Navy had some subs down in the area :-)

Dang that's crazy. I'm sure we could speculate all day. I heard a guy hooked a 600 lb tiger sharks off Ft Pickens a few years ago. There's so much crazy stuff out there. I bet a decent blackfin tuna could do that if you're using under 20 lbs of drag.

I was thinking a big blackfin too. But it was still tearing line and gaining speed after I locked it down and tightened up to the point of breaking. Love Ande line, takes a lot to break it.

I hate the feeling of not knowing what just owned you and your gear. could've been a sail that didn't jump or a big blackfin.

I was a pier rat in the mid-1080s and I saw some BIG fish off Navarre pier back in the day. There was a yellowfin tuna that was hanging around the pier for a couple of days. There was one day when a school of ~ 60 lb Amberjack were cruising up and down the pillings on the pier. That's why I loved pier fishing. You never knew what might show up.
