    I also hit a local pond on wed. It was raining pretty good and windy, but the bass were hitting I caught 6 between 1.5lbs & 3.5lbs. I als lost 2 that were bigger. I also learned a lesson about using right line & reel for the presentation. I was tossing a tube with a 7' med action spinning rod with 8lb test. snapped line twice on a couple of pigs. Oh well still had great day...
     
  4. you should be fine usiong 8# line. I don't use more than 6# the majority of the time and have caught quite a few descent sized fish I might add. check to see your is dry rotted or just old. it could also be your knot.
    hope this helps good luck!
     
  5. I agree Yakfish, line that is old will snap, also drag not set correctly will cause you to loose fish along with old line. Always check the drag and change you line frequently. God I hope this rain stops, it is going to be a slow weekend for sure, and muddy rivers and streams.
    Go Get'em Boys !!!

    Thanks for the replys. I think old line might be the culprit I havent change the line on that reel for a while.
     
  8. That fish is bigger than your sons head. Can you take my fishing pics?
