I had a major bendo. As soon as I picked it up I knew it wasn't an ordinary trout. It was heavy like a damned log. This log was taking line easily. I pumped it gently, reeled in the slack and repeated. Again a lot of line going out. I adjusted the drag a mite stiffer. Still it took line freely. I was a little low on line so I was worried about getting spooled so I tightened the drag another smidgeon... SNAP! Crap! You guys know that awful feeling. Lol. I didn't even get to see the damned thing but it barely let me get it in very far. I fought it for about 2 minutes. We'll never know.
I'd fish with 2lb test if I could see it.
