Alright. Now, it’s time to catch this fish.
I got my rod belt on. Got my gimble on my rod. Let’s say for instance you didn’t have
a gimble on the rod. You could just simply put a rubber crutch tip over this and insert
it in the rod holder as well. But, in this case we’ve got it gimbled in and this will
really give us a nice advantage. Because, it balances the rod. Now, I’m ready to fight
this fish. The fish is taking line. All I’m doing is I’m positioning myself in a balanced
way so that I don’t go flying backwards if the hook pulls out. My arm’s straight up against
the fore grip. I’m keeping my hand away from the line so I don’t get cut. And, now I’m
just going to once he quits pulling I’m just going to lift back and I’m going to wind down.
I’m going to pump and reel. I’m going to pull that guy right back to the boat by simply
pumping and reeling the fish back to me. Again, the reel is not a wench. It simply puts line
back on the reel. Although, it has a lot of power. But, the rod is your main source of
getting that fish to the boat by simply pumping and reeling and making sure that you don’t
give slack when you’re reeling down on the fish. Because, that’s generally where you
lose your fish is when that happens and the hook just pulls out.
