Always...always...alwaysssss....check your leaders. Had a light NW wind today so I grabbed some live bait, and headed to a pretty looking little point I like to check out every once in a while. Caught about 8 or so short flounder before I pitched a bait to a dock nearby the point and BAM! Got smoked. He took me around the dock and just as I put the sticks to him....he was gone. Definitely a doormat. When I brough the line back it had broke right above the hook. Totally my error not checking after all the smallies had probably been chewing on the line all day. Still, I found them... and thats always a good day.
