Red Snapper & a one way submarine

Date: 08-03-2013      Time: 8.50pm      Rod; Penn Powergraph surf 12ft.      Reel: Daiwa Saltist 40     Line: 30lbs mono      Rig: Long snood bottom feeder      Bait: Frozen Tamban

Tide was about to full…..Current is still running strong….We were talking about earlier my hard fought battle to a one way train. A huge stingray just manage to strip off my shimano torium 20 reel two hundreds meter of mono and braided line and break free. It just keep going with the help of the strong current without any turning back. I lost it after nearly half n hour of tight drag fighting. Below is the video showing ah boi trying to help and the fish keep running. I only able to pump when the fish stop briefly..Sound are affected by the strong wind that night.

Ah Boi went to change his bait….He feel the weight at the end of the line…but he thought tangle my line….so both of us wind back together..Then…..he feel some struggle…..end up a big red snapper below….I use my hand to grab hold of his leader and pull it up….2.5kg is the weight…..Very rare at jetty.
