Off ocean rocks, on fly gear, GT's and Yellow Tail kings, in the 50lb and up class.
I've had them on, lots of times, but they seem to break anything and everything attached to them. The little ones, up to 25lb are tough enough.
9 foot whaler sharks are also a bit tough.
I once had a tuna in the 150lb class take a lead head jig off a rock, at Red bluff here in WA, but it looked a bit on the big side so I did nothing and it spat the jig out.The two guys with me, both had "more guts" hooked a couple and lost all of their line in about 6 seconds.
Rodney has a story about a biggish Black Bass, a boat, tied end to end on two trees, and a 50lb live bait outfit, with a live tilapia attached, with the drag screwed right up tight with a multigrip, and explosion of line and rod breaking and a departing denisen of those Nuginea creeks. Rather hilarious.
Tell 'em Harro.
