This was the day I had one fish bend my rod down & bend a Driftmaster rod holder. Lost it after a hard tug of war game under the boat. Then I had another one rip drag, I engaged the spool & it barely slowed him down. After over a 1/2 hour, it pulled the hook loose. It was a good 150 yards downstream, never gained any on it. It was probably in the class with the 62# fish. I had my buddy take my picture after fighting about 20-30 minutes, just because I knew that was as close as I would ever get to it. We should've pulled anchor & chased it, hindsight is 20/20
Yes, that's blood on the lens, not only the bait & the fish bleed, we do too.
