This is my first year saltwater fishing, and it seems like I am never prepared for what happens. I was on my Jetski fishing the 3 mile bridge. Cut Minheaden on 1 pole and red jig white gulp on my brand new stradic 4000. I got what I thought was a hit on it, I pulled up and got about two reels in and the fish takes off. 100 yards of line was gone like that. I paniced, I should have unhooked my jetski and chased it down, but instead I tightened the drag and it broke... duh.. Of course it couldnt have taken the bait on my rod set up to handle a fish like that.
