Does anyone have suggestions for setups or rigs to prevent backlash (defined here as sinker and hook flying back toward you at 70mph) when fish get off?
After multiple trips to the Kenai fishing for reds, there seems to be ongoing injuries from backlash of sinkers when fish get off. While most people wear eye protection, I have talked to many people who have had injuries from sinkers to the head, face, eye, and other areas. I have heard different methods of preventing problems including putting a bead above the sinkers, using braided line, but these methods dont seem effective. Please help. Thanks.
