Caught this guy the other day on a Daiwa Tierra 2500 reelspooled 20# Power Pro with a 15# Flouro Carbon leader, mounted on an 7' Ugly Stick Lite rod(8-15 lb. line class). Dinner for him was a 6" Menhaden. The battle lasted 45 minutes, from day through dark. I had my fishin partner pull the anchor and keep repositioning the boat down current of the fish. Man I was pumped (still not sure what I was hooked up on) this fish pulled the boat where ever he wanted to (even against the swift current). When I got him to the the boat and netted the BIG GUY, I'm still not sure who was more "whoopped". It took me about 10 minutes to revive this old fellow, and then offhe swamto fight another day!
