    In the first place two failures out of two fish is not a telling fact and one of those was a hook coming out of the fishes mouth. Come back with the same question after you have had 8 or 10 failures in a row. My guess is that at that point you will be able to answer your own question......at this point my guess your problem is inexperience.

    Agreeing with everyone else as far as experience is concerned.... I also recommend buying a spool of flouro, 12lb. Twist up your own leaders... Which in this case would give you a 36lb butt section, down to 24lb and finish off with just a 12lb tippet of flouro. This should give you plenty of muscle to fight fish along with abrasion resistance of flouro.
