small 15m from 44:150 with using just NC has been very good. lost a really nice sturgeon, accidently maxed dragged lol. So if you don't have gold bait try that. Mole Crickets btw be very careful here. The Beluga are in the 15m and are hitting mole crickets and these fish are no joke! Do not let them swim downstream, keep them between D and F or if you let it go past, forget it because you need lots of run room when its tired to reel it in otherwise the current will take it from its sheer weight. This goes for all big fish.
Another note, do not fight catfish on gold 80 lol. I was to stubborn and spent 1 hour, 36 minutes to bring this catfish in and it had no problem going to the other side very quickly.
Get good at controlling where the fish swims and you can land big fish ... or just get them in the deep pockets in the rivers lol
Oh btw, 0% friction to 5.4% friction. Why did I use gold 80, cause I invested in 3x mayor's that can not be used in the open water so all I have is 1 venga and 3 gold 80s that have the line length. Sucks trust me!
