I'm learning that lol.. More power in the swing!
And thank you!!
You're quickly getting the hang of this.
One more bit of advice.... Don't pump your rod like you're off shore salt water fishing. You need an aggressive hook set but bringing your rod down to grab line is a salt water tactic. Keep that rod tip high and keep cranking, doing whatever you can to keep tension on the hook at all times.
Great job. Sorry you missed that 9 pounder.
