I was hanging out at the pier for about 2 hours and saw 1 26.6 lb. king get landed, 1 more king steal a bait, a jack, and a BIG tarpon get lost. a thunderstorm was coming and my buddy said to me "I am gonna go get my jacket, watch my stuff." right when he said that I saw a big fish try to eat his bait and then get it. my buddy hadnt left yet so he picked up his rod and let it eat and then set the hook. the tarpon only jumped once but it was awesome. it then proceeded to dump his reel even with a good drag. he had 300 yds of mono with 300 yds of braid backing and the fish popped the braid with only about 50-70 yds left. I felt the spool of the reel after the line broke and it was HOTT!
