Don't Use This Fishing Line (LOST 3 OF 4!) | MMB Ep. 15

Don’t ever use this fishing line… I lost 3 of 4 fish. Was I a bit “underpowered”? Yes… HOWEVER… I’ve pulled big bass out of here using 6 pound monofilament and 8 pound fluorocarbon many, many times. 10 pound test is MORE than I usually use.

Ah well… no skunk at least.

BASS IS BASS… and #TheHuntFor250 continues!
