fish got awey

Recommended Posts

Multiple factors here:


1.) Line Tension - if you have a slack line (no tension) this can cause the fish to come loose.

2.) Quality of Hooks - The higher quality hooks you have (the # of stars seen in the store) the less chance of a fish getting away during a long fight.

3.) Bad Luck - in some cases, the fish just comes loose. With that said, I have caught thousands of fish and less than 1% of them have gotten away.

Nawly17 is correct on all points.  Other common mistakes are reeling while the fish is taking line, shift reeling, and putting too much pressure on the fish.  You want to let the fish tire itself out and then bring it in.
