Pete, did not mean to be over critical of your buddy, more makeing a joke than anything , juss sayn his and my way of going after a fish with a net are very different... Never will i let the net man dance around 10 yds in front of me on a green fish, playing the limbo game with my line, and Iv'e never seen a guy come at a green fish that big, from the rear with the net already in the water, have any luck whatsoever . Maybe we just have a different aproach on landing a big fish.
I agree with you putting preasure on that fish for all the right reasons, very commendaBLE OF YOU , but for some reason, your rod is bucking bigtime everytime the fish surges, and several times in each short run... When a big fish wants to go, he's gonna go... Steady preasure will at the right time give you a much better chance of keepeing the hook in... I don't doubt you know this, this is for those who do not...
I'm not telling anyone what to do, just suggesting things for others to try especially newbies... I've been on the wroung end of a few big fish, these ideas have helped me get my mitts on a couple as I learned better ways to do things-
I'll gladly delete this post if you wish , just giving different perspective to other speypagers-
Again, great vid, keep up the good work, go get your paws on that big dog now and show us the video !!
peace on the h20-
