Addictive is right …..I was thinking it had to be a kingy while waiting for the guides to bust off the rod , all sorts of creaking/clinking going on ….I had a heap of hurt on it trying not to get spooled …..that was a rush
Ive found they are a ways from the Mac mouth on the south side ….assuming the same on the north ….
