Re: Surfcasting Mistakes
One new mistake this season- decided to join the fat-ass deadstick brigade and throw out an anchor and bait. Drew back the rod, got a good preload and flung 'er forward to a SNAP!......I have no idea where the pyramid, hook and eel went. Tied on another eel and decided to cast and retrieve, as usual. I think I would be bummed out if I didn't get to feel the fish hit, and fight it through the first couple of surface crashes.
What do these guys all run to their rods to see who has the fish on?
