This one bent the pole right over and took A LOT of drag! She put up a fun fight. I also have the biggest fish again out of the two of us ;) two years in a row so far!

      Yeah even my other big one from September didn't put up as much of a fight as this one. When I first hooked it, it was solid so I know it was big. It had a good ...more tug, then all of a sudden it took so much drag I wondered if I was ever going to get that thing to shore! Then it swam towards us a bit, then took off again lmao. But we finally got it in and our net almost broke. Most fun fish so far
