We've fished the I-10 Escambia Bay bridge several times in the last few months at night- a lot of fun but not real productive. Caught several small trout - white and specks. We also use a neon greensubmersible light to draw in the bait fish. Pretty cool stuff; just haven't caught any keepers.

But, we did rig up a small 5" white trout on a Carolina rig late one night. About ten minutes later WHAM! Something took off like a rocketand spooled325 yards of 30# before I could even get the rod out of the rodholder. It reallyscared the crap out of me! But man was thata fun time!

I am assuming that since there was no statement about it being a "big assed ( insert name of fish here ) " that what ever it was still has the325 yards of 30#.

Only about an inch or so of line was left on the arbor. What was left looked like a curly q from the stress on the monofilament as it was snapped.

Good news is that arbor knots really work!
