Default Getting Spooled

While reef fishing, what fish is it that runs non stop and spools your line off?

Most likely sharks. Have caught big cobia off the bottom a time or 2 that were surprises tho. Also heard of a random big king caught off the bottom.

Depending on tackle and how much line it took, could've been many things.

Just red snapper tackle, big spinner or a 330 gti, sometimes a PENN 4/0

What kind of shark? Most we catch (blacktip) tend to come up instead of running

Shark takes it straight out and breaks you off or spools you

You might even get flipper if it's really quick. Something that runs no fast and you can't turn probably a shark. But heck you could have hooked a number of things that would spool ya....

Something large. Probably not a grouper.
