Everything sounds great day out, but what an expensive dogfish. Shame about Leo's runaway, it does sound like he would have had no chance of boating it whatever it was. Geoff. 🙂

Thanks Andy for subbing Leo and I some tackle, such a silly mistake to make. I put it down to excitement in anticipation of tope!! 
Was a great day afloat on JG again. And what a shame we never even got to see the leviathan.

Next time, if you are drifting, one crew starts getting the other lines in and the skipper immediately starts chasing down the fish to keep line on the reel.

We have all been there, and it is easy with hind sight, but next time guarantee you will ‘chase it down’. 😉

Inwas going to say… it’s a phrase that doesn’t come out often my boat but “fire up the engine” is a phrase needed on times like this 😁😁😁😁

Live and learn and next time itlll be bigger for Leo to land 😁😁😁😁😁

Agree, but it takes a while to get to that way of thinking, as here in the uk is is not something we do.

I lost a Tuna in 2014 which spooled me, but in hindsight we should has chased it. These days, chasing fish is now a natural thing for me to do.

Catching fish on @Andy135's boat is a surprise let alone chasing one🤣🤣

 

edit....... helps to have a tackle box though (added to prevent anybody else's fun)!!

Well done on getting out after it, sounds thresher-esq What hit the rod , did the line just part at the spool or ? Was it braid how heavy 

it’s all chaos when that rachet goes ,,, but we live for it

Hey Josh. Line parted at the spool. @Saintly Fish can confirm the b/s of the braid.

Yeah it was quite impressive, the fish didn't even know it was hooked, and it's typical that it took the rod that was the least prepared for it. An ugly stick 20/30 with an Okuma slx10!! 
if it had taken my rod we may have had more chance of seeing it, or Andy's shark rod, but no...
