A fishing trip that went incredibly right. Every once in a while you hear about someone landing a big one on light tackle. Today, it was my turn. While fishing for papio [Papio: Jack Crevalle/Ulua under 10 lbs.] on the eastern coast of Kalaupapa, a big one bites.
14 pound test monofilament main line, 25 pound test monofilament leader, 6′ medium/light rod, Penn 5500 spin fisher reel. The fish? Somewhere in the 30-40 pound range.
