Last night I went out to the same spot that I caught the 40# flat the other night. At about 8:30pm I has a bite, then it stopped. I put the rod back down in the rod holder and about five minutes later it started biting again. I thought the fish was small the way it was biting so I set the hook kind of a light hookset to what I was used to. Once I set the hook it felt like a snag, I mean the rod bent over like I was hooked to a tree or something. Then the snag started swimming and pulling like crazy. Everything was going fine until the fish pulled and snapped my 40# big game like it was 2# test. I then realized that I had a snag about a week ago and the drag was set to full. I know that whatever it was, was way bigger than the 40# I caught the other night, it pulled like a freight train, and I would have most likely caught it had I set the drag. This is one of those moments that I will never forget. Possibly the biggest fish I have ever seen is swimming the river with a 10/0 gamakatsu octopus, with an 80# gorrilla braid leader hanging out of his mouth. I just hope it was a mouth hookset and not in the gut or anything. I dont want the fish to die, and it possibly might due to my lack of attention to detail. Hopefully tonight the fish will bite again, and I can get my rig back, lol. Anyone ever have one of these experiences. I know I will never make that mistake again.
