Big pred loses microlite battle

Long-casting the Micro-Jigs for B.Gills I come into an occasional Big-Pred taking the bait to be fought with Micro lite rods and reels. I hold an advantage… my microlite reels are loaded with super lines very thin in diameter but 4 to 6 times the strength of mono with greater knot strength.

The below video is a segment of a controlled drift over 6-9’ of water varied with weed patches and open water… the bottom is covered with 1-2’ of Starry Stonewort. If the fish reaches the weeds they are typically gone with 2# test. Watch how I defeat this 4# C.Cat on Micro Lite Equipment by not giving an inch just the bend of the rod. The reel is loaded with 4# NanoFil but seems to strength just a bit further maybe 6# mono equivalent.

The fish was brought to net in just under a minute.
