Returned to my "secret" spot today with a little heavier tackle to avoid leaving any "dead" line in the water. a g-loomis 1089 and vs250 with 30ib braid and 60ib flouro wind-on leader. still lost a bunch to the rocks but managed to land a bakers dozen with the heavier tackle. I apologize for the orientation of the fish in the picture, I held him like that for all of 5 seconds for the picture. no fish were injured in the making of this report.
