Brought my shark set up.. 200 lb leader 10/0 circle. Caught a few croaker. Boom! casted out a fresh head. Let it soak for about 1 hour—40 yards out or so. Then the miracle occurred. Drag ripper ! Thought it was a big ray but NOPE. 40+ pound yellow tail.

    Thank you! I am completely content knowing that this occurrence will never happen again in my fishing career but it’s a heck of a story
