Awesome PQ, sounds like everyone here is in YT fiesta mode! Great to hear the fishing is good, and everyone had a blast at the tournament. Maybe if I get a chance, next one I will attend with the fly rod.

I wish I had a scale to see how hard I was pulling on that big one to keep his head up! ;)

I use a scale to set my drag to start with - usually 40-50% on 50# mono, and 30-40% on 65# spectra, depending on which rod and reel I am using. I thumb the spool when that is not enough. If I am having to grab the spool too often, I crank another half turn of drag in. In this photo, I had already tightened down because it was taking both hands and my crotch to keep his head up, so I would guess it's at 22-25 pounds on the Saragosa 8000.

That's pretty good amount of beating you're putting on them YT's, also your crotch as well. Really the IronMan. *bow down*

The fly rod should be able to take 18lbs safely and with the handle being short on them by design I won't be able to go higher without letting go of the rod. Great insight!
