    I was fishing in a lake I frequent, all night not a tic, or, click. I decided to free line a 6" creek chub 20 min later, I thought the bearings in my amb 6000 were going to burn up. I set the hook, drag started peeling, rod completely doubled over, ( 10' cat-max ) and the line snapped. (30# big game). That sucked :cursing:

    I fish the ohio a little, just getting into it actually. I dont have a boat though, so I have to bank fish.
