Default What broke my line?

Fishing for pompano off beach at Perdido Key this afternoon. Using typical 2 hook bottom weight rig with live sand fleas. Hooked something that really bent my Penn surf rod and line was flying off my reel. I think I tightened the drag too much and the line broke. What would eat a sand flea that is big enough to do that? I doubt a pomp would do that.

I caught a Jack once. As I brought it along side the boardwalk, I noticed my hook and bait next to his tail. He had my pyramid weight in his mouth and would not let it go! It was crazy.

Thus jacks will eat anything. But if I had to stab a guess... I would put my money on a big Red or Black drum

Yep, he didn't let go until I touched him with my hand.

This has happened to me about 5 or 6 times this year, each time it seems to hit on the smallest rod that I have out.
