sounds like a blast. I was at Carolina beach last weekend and took my tarpon 120 out through the surf for the first time - it was super calm, but glad a have the sit on top vs the sit in. maybe a 1/4-1/2 mile off and a swarm of bluefish flared up within casting reach. Fish on and 15-30 seconds of screaming reel before the 10# braid broke. What a rush! green swimbait (as if it would've mattered to the chompers!). I am ruined for a while trying to recreate that one! Hope you have Fun!
