Went really hard Colin. Had us guessing all the way to the top. It started out like a big shark, slow powerful run. Then it was more like a sambo trying to get back to the bottom and when it was close to the surface it was more like a big dhuy. Dead weight. When it surfaced it suprised both of us.

It was caught on a shimano 200 t-curve and a tyrons 16 reel with 30lb braid using a fresh cuttlefish leg which was caught minutes before.
