We use 'Cuban YoYo's". The 10 inch dia spools with 200 lb mono and a steel
leader. I use the cleats
as a drag and a bunge as shock absorber.. A big feather or a rigged Ballyhoo and Game
on! You can pull in the mono with gloves on and we are food fishing
... not sport.
I gave up rod and reel on the sailboat. The last time I used that rig I foul hooked a huge Mahi. The fish
went everywhere while I tried in vain to get around all the rigging
. Looking back at the chart plotter history
it looked like an etch-a-schetch on crack.
Now we just hog them in and chow down.
