I have just returned from an eght day striper fishing trip on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The netters broke their quota the second day of the first week @ 100,000 lbs. There was a two and a half day blitz up at Ocean Sands. You had to have a bait which looked like Menhadden (Storm Mullet 6")in order to hook up. One of our guys got a 33 1/2 incher, and another a 44 1/2 incher. We did not get many fish but had a great time. On this trip, using a Shimano 4500B Baitrunner spooled with 50 lb. test Power Pro, mounted on a 10'-0" Ugly Stick M/H action, once throwing 8 ounces + bait, and the other 6 oz. + bait, I had this line to break in the middle of my cast with no reason what so ever!! I am going back to Fireline!! Never a problem with this line! Power Pro = No Go for this old surf caster!!!!!
