    I to have hooked into a nice one down there, same circumstance same results. I do know that was the strongest thing I have ever felt on the other end of a fishing pole. I now realized I should have untied the boat and let it pull me around to wear it out. But hindsight is 20/20

    I would say fishing an area that has toothy fish is an occasion to use a steel leader. But I don't like using them because the cats mouths are so soft.
