Yes Jean, but your 12.5 foot rod and properly set drag goes a long way towards your landing that fish. For those that don't know, the long rod takes up a lot up force that may be put on the lighter weight line, allowing you to cast further with a lighter line and also a longer rod takes lot of fight from a fish, always working that rod tension. I was and am a proponent of such a system, it is just not practical from a yak, and tougher to land a fish while wading too. However it will take its toll on your wrist holding that long rod, but luckily Jean is one tough guy.
Bank or pier fishing it is a great approach though.

BTW, I use 15 lb braid with a 20lb Berkley Trilene Mono leader down here, unless the water is gin clear I do not spend the extra money on Flouro, if that helps. I also use a 6.5 inch Laguna custom rod, my first rod preference for every trip.

You right,fishing with long spinning rods at ROLLOVER PASS i have many advantage.I am fishing just from the bank with artificial and with long rods i can cast long distance with tynni braid(maximum for me 10 lb. and also with 4 lb. ,6 lb. 8lb.+8 lb.-14 lb. fluorocarbon leader).

With long rods i can keep little line on the water because all the time i keep my tip of the rod at 45 degree and just the fluorocarbon leader touching the bottom(the fluorocarbon is more resistance to abrasion like braid).When i have i bite i can strike easy in time with long rod and in the same time make my fight with big fish more easy.

I was trying to build myself my long rods using fly blanks,so the rod is not so heavy,or i was changing same G.LOOMIS IMX 9'wt 10 ,wt 12 fly rod and SAGE RPLX 9' wt.10,wt 11,wt 12/13 fly rods in spinning rods.

I am fishing just at ROLLOVER PASS because i am disable(problems with my legs).I don't fish in surf or from the pier for the same reason.

At ROLLOVER PASS i can park my car very close with the bank,take my ice box from my trunk an fishing sitting on my ice box.I can't fishing sitting on my legs.

"IF" I use Fluor, It will be 20# Sunline ,but usually Suffix Titanium currently!
Depends on the depth of water I am fishing and with what lure I am throwing.
