To all the Knowledgeable fishermen here [smilie=cool_goatee.gif] ,

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 :cry:


Your thoughts appreciated!

Mostly probably it will be some wood log or debris floating beneath. String ray should have bolted and it would fight.
Grouper will stay in the rock and it would not move even if you let loose the drag.

May be crab(stone crab), this happened to me, but for dead bait, not sure about jig.

It could be old nets or some kind of a cloth caught up with other debree and moving around in the current.
I've had similar situation around Chennai and managed to bring it to the shore more than a couple of times.

Besides, anything that's going to hit your metal lure is very likely to be moving slowly :P

Similar experience on a river in North Australia. Felt I had snagged on a rock underwater for quite sometime...... took off the pressure on the line and it started moving.

It was a grouper/rockcod, landed successfully.

It was this guy .... a larger one could decide to move slowly if hooked or just stay and sulk.
