    Open Forum
    Nearly every time I've fished AI I hook into a "mystery fish" and nearly get spooled. Last time was with a Penn 8500 SS with 20# on a 12' Tica. Looking at the Penn GS555, the Diawa X40SHA, and the Diawa X50SHA. I'm not sure if these reels have centrifugal cast controls or not. If not are they...

  17. How to fillet a shark:From beach to freezer
