Warning, fish story!
I was crewing
on a boat from MD to the Exhumas this past fall, and we were pulling two yo-yo's- a white bucktail and a cedar plug
. We had just crossed the stream, on a nice sunny day with light winds. The white bucktail hit first and the yo-you zinged out line super fast. I was able to grab hold of the yo-yo and feel the weight at the end of the line and it made the rockfish I caught above feel like a panfish. About 5 seconds in my line (100 lb test) parted. Then the yo-yo with the plug
hit, and same thing, but that one parted on the steel
leader! We decided it was probably best we didn't catch whatever was on the other end of the line!
