Yeah I did get one on spin. He was about 50# and took one long run of about 150 - 200 yds. I have got 300 yds powerpro for backing on the 10wt and if I am lucky enough to hook up I think with a little chase action that will be sufficient. The big question will be raising it when it goes deep and starts the circle stuff. I just don't know if the 10 can handle it - perhaps I will use my phleuger which does not cast as well as my DS2 but has more backbone.

I'm also hoping for a morning run mid week and a secondary hope to that is that they wont be as skittish around the boat.
Tight Lines,
