Had one of the most strange things happen to us today while surf fishing on Assateague Island. We had caught only a few small things and one skate when something hit hard. It hit a piece of large cut bait on a 7/0 hook about 120 yards out. I was using a 12' rod with conventional reel that holds about 350 yards of the 25 lb. line on it. I was spoiled in about 40 seconds. This thing didn't swim parallel to the beach, but went almost straight out. It never slowed, shook or turned and none of us ever saw a thing.
