I tighten mine 100% for the cast ….then back it off util line easiely comes off the reel , but enough to put a nice bend on the rod without lifting the breakaway sinker …..
Then I flick up my bait runner drag ….just as an added safety measure

When it comes to fighting / landing the fish , I dont alter the drag at all , simply figering the spool ever so lightly to create any tempory drag if needed ……

Is the same technique I use when catching ele’s or rig on light line .. 2.3lb to be precise ….so its quite effective ……Sharp hooks are vital tho
