I Just Bought a uglystik thats 7 feet tall and says 10-25 pound line im going on a Fishing trip to the ocean and expecting to catch a 50 pound fish is this possible and how? Dose a Fish weigh less in water?
You can catch 100 pounders with that line but this is strictly based on your skill. There was a guy who caught a world record Marlin and used only 8 pound test line (monofilament). Just make sure you are using a leader that is double your line strength, you have your drag set at 1/3 the breaking strength of your main line and use sharp hooks. Do fish weigh less in the water, no, it’s the same weight . It’s just buoyancy that makes things feel lighter when you hold it in the water.~good luck catchin’.
