Default Sail Fish

Fished out of Seagrove beach last week... Really slow but did manage to hook up with a sail fish in 40 feet of water using a frozen cigar minnow. Fought it for a few minutes before he made one final jump and broke my wire leader. My son was able to capture the last jump...

I hooked one a couple weeks ago on a big sand perch I was trolling. Dragged me 2 miles down the beach before it threw the hook.

What kind of leader did you have on with that sand perch?

I sometimes wonder if its worth having a rod rigged with 50lb mono, I would have to weather cutoffs from kings but it may improve the chances for blackfin or sails.
