300 yards of line? You sure about that?

I have backing that changes colors every 25 yards so I know exactly how much backing bones take. My all time record was just under 140 yards, and that was a 10 lb. fish on a 5 weight in Hawaii. I read in one of Lefty's books that it was so long before a bonefish actually got to his 150 yard mark on his backing, that he had actually forgotten he put it there!

By the way, your 32 inch Oahu fish was probably 13-14 lbs. Awesome fish!
