Question:

Has anyone experienced line stretch while using this line? The reason I ask is that I was fishing Matty this weekend and it seemed like it became more difficult to set the hook later in the day after fighting a few sharks and spanish macks. I was using a 6'6" Laguna Inshore ML. My casts were cosistently 30-40 yds using corks and tails. I may be crazy, but it seemed that I lost a bunch of fish later than earlier to bad hookset.

The heat could effect the stretch. And after ALL those fish, the hook might have dulled.

When I used mono, I started using Gamakatsu hooks. I love the 1/0 Kahle for shrimp and mullet fishing for reds and trout. Sharp as mother trucker...be careful.

Sir Tob:

Dulling hooks would have played a part I am sure, however, many hooks were left in a couple of blacktips! In fact, my line broke just abopve my cork and the shark could be seen swimming around the boat just like in jaws....funny stuff. I never considered the heat...good point.
