Yes a #4 Lamson litespeed is a must! My buddy took his #3.5 and the frame was bending so bad that the spool would rub the edge of the frame. I have lots of video that I will post when I finish the editing.

And yes guys it was a HAWG I caught one that was even bigger but as I was about to take a picture it did one final tail maneuver and it was gone! Just a blast to have the opportunity to fish such magnificent fish!

Thanks for the compliments guys!
