To all the Knowledgeable fishermen here
lately I came across this situation while rock fishing a river mouth. Casted a metal jig into the waves, and got a hit, thought it would run but no drag scream or runs, tugged the line and it was steady as a rock, so I eventually thought it was snagged to a rock below. But then the drag started moving slowly and taking line, thought it might have been the current, but with the line held tight on the rod, it couldn't have been the current. Was it a sting ray? or a grouper? or just a log rolling with the current on the ocean floor? after tugging and trying to set loose the lure, if i let the drag a little bit loose it started taking line. Tried for few mins to see if I could set free my lure and it eventually broke off
Your thoughts appreciated!
