In 3 hours of fishing my buddy and I lost 2 double hook setups and one deadhead jig. All three times there was a dissent tug on the line and when you pulled up-nothing but line; using 65lb test PowerPro. The first time I thought it was the knot or I just caught the line on a sharp rock, but after three times,,,no way.
We fished off south Knight and in Montague channel, lost gear the same way in both places. I know my knots weren’t slipping because we pulled in a couple of nice Halibut, and I began tying a square knot in loose end at the terminal swivel.
Never lost gear like this before, only thing that makes sense is Salmon Sharks; if I had some wire leader would have used it. So just wondering if anyone else was out there this weekend having the same problem, or had similar experience.
