Think of the anticipation. You cast your "blessed" attraction with the hope of catching the TROPHY "tiger" for the location (new globe record from Idaho is 44.26 pounds). However then IT begins ... IT being the difficult activity of hesitating and also waiting and awaiting a nudge, a press, anything! And while you stoically master IT, "tigers" are "bobbing" on the surface (one "bobs" right into your line), entering the contrary direction of your cast, as well as seen within 1 foot of your area (if simply you had a net ready, one could have scoped him up and asserted the new document).
As much as poles and also reels are concerned, the very best advise is to make use of a minimum 6'6" rod with either an open-faced (spinning) reel or baitcaster. And also use the heaviest pound test line your reel could manage or exactly what you feel comfortable utilizing. After shedding one of the greatest "tigers" during a recent fishing trip, braided/fused line and also rotating reel/baitcaster aficionados have obtained a brand-new convert. Never once more will certainly a "tiger" be lost due to improper tools ... next time it will be considering that the "tiger" was a worthy challenger as well as suggested to eliminate one more day.
