Lost a good one the other day. It hit it hard then went for deep deep runs then came up, looked a decent size – bigger than the other’s I’ve caught. Noticed the hook was barly in which is why it took me for a ride! Took ~10mins then bent & spat the hook at the last minute. Brand new size 4 s-owner hook too. Oh well. That’s fishing.
There’s a few fish around! Make sure your hooks are sharp and strong!
