How do folks handle the drag from the boat
sailing/motoring when trying to reel in a fish? If I let the boat
keep sailing, the pull of the fish plus the boat's speed is too much if the fish is more than small. If I try to stop the boat, a Chinese fire drill ensues and the fish can get away and/or some thing/one gets broken/hurt. If I am close hauled, I have had success in tacking over to a heave-to position, however if I am on a broad reach or run, the sails
are not properly trimmed and that method doesn't work
very well. Does anyone have a better technique?
