On the first couple of drops we caught som greeneyes. When I was winding up my fifth, I got a massive bite in midwater. With my 80lb line I completely locked the drag and put my thumb on the spool on my Shimano Talica 8II. The fish began running and took over 200m of line before I accendentely pushed it to hard and the line broke. Eric, the guide, had a similar bite just after but unfortunately his line broke too. So this was my second attempt, using a small, live sardine. MUCH smaller fish, but what a fight!
