Deadeye 1,

Hi. I need help here not being an off shore fisherman.

Normally drag is set for about 25% of the line test.

A 50# class rod using 50 # test mono would have the drag set for about 12-15 # 's of pull.

I think if I wanted to use 200 # test line I would use a 130 - unlimited rated rod.

Please post this on the off shore board and I am sure you will get a much more defined answer.
