Yesterday I shot a 31 pound yellowtail from the bottom and it took 30 meters of reel line before I reached the surface. It swam all over the place in the rocks and it took me 15 minutes to get to the fish. By that time three morey eels were eating its guts. I was a bit relunctant to grab the fish. Any of you ever got bit?
I always wonder about eels when my legs are laying there behind me, as they usually do, and there are nice cracks where i imagine monsters live….
