Bright and early to the surf about 5 AM.
Incoming tide , High about 9 ish . Mullet heads for bait checked and rechecked snaps on leaders and line. Had three hook up's just as the sun was coming up. 2 of them I never saw the 3 rd was a nice Black Tip each one of them broke me off after they almost spooled me. They had to be BIGGINS. I am going to buy some wire this PM for the weekend shark fest. I thought I had my A$$ covered guess they out smarted me or possibly out weighed me. :D

Hey Koz, maybe its time to spool up a pole with 50lb saltwater fusion, crank the drag down and reel em right across the top of the water
I agree, a challenge is good, but its annoying as all hell to lose fish after fish. So maybe I was a lil over the top with the 50lb stuff, thats what I've got on my Penn 320gt2.....you can always go down to 20 or 30....I dunno, I happen to love spiderwire. What do you use?
