Thanks for all the kind words from everyone over the past week! Its been a heck of a ride and I'm glad I gotta share it with you guys! Now I need to get back on work schedule, it starts tomorrow....come on Friday night im ready After I caught that fish I locked all my reels down haha I started thinking, maybe I have missed more fish over the years then I should have because I use runners and clickers. I use kahle hooks and the ones I get are offset. My thought is if the line is tight when they hit that will help the hook to begin penatrating the fishes mouth because of the tension. Kind of like a trot line how it works its a tight line(i think) Almost like a circle hook too. As I was pulling up on my rod I had cranked down alittle too. I have heard of guys using kahles like circles. Its making me rethink how I have been fishing. More experimenting is required. Maybe I need to take another week off!
