    Them will test your tackle out pretty quick, were you trolling the river? Pulling out in front of the lay downs? Guess I need to take a ride south one day and see how you do it :wink: Great fish, thanks for sharing!

    Absolutely....lined with new 20# mono at all times. If the line gets frayed or wore out...I just replace it with new line. A good drag is very important too.:big_smile:
