Probably anything works.
In Okinawa we were trolling for Tuna, and it was my turn at the pole when the drag started screaming. I grabbed the pole, stuck it in the gamble and settled into the chair for what I thought was going to be an hour-long battle.
About 5 minutes into it the line went limp, but I noticed something bouncing in the water. I reeled it in to discover I had the head and upper torso of a tuna.
A few minutes after that a HUGE 12'+ shark swam up to the boat to say hi.
We caught his buddy, which led to one of my favorite fishing stories.
I gaffed it and brought it into the boat. And stepped back to get the blood off my glasses. So my buddy John decided to remove the hook, He grabbed the leader in one hand, and with a pair of pliers went to pop the lure out.
About then I noticed John struggling with something. The lure was about 6" long, and had 2 sets of hooks almost as thick as your pinkey.
One set of hooks was in the shark's mouth, and the other was firmly embedded in John's arm. It wasn't a huge shark, about 4' long, but it's jaws were plenty big and he was REALLY pee-pee'd[/COLOR].
So I reached down and grabbed the set of hooks in John's arm and pulled as hard as I could. The hooks came out along with with some flesh. He thanked me and is very proud of his scars.
