Default Bucket list Wahoo on spinning gear

Caught it on a flat line in just under 200’ of water. He ate a leather jack on 27lb single strand. 10000 Saragossa had to chase him a few times.
I didn’t get a weight but he measured 67” to the fork.
This was a bucket list fish for me. I always wanted to catch a good one on a spinning reel.

And they hurt like holy hell for the longest. Unlike any other prick wound I've experienced.
