Yes, do them all at the same timeA serious question -
You hook a large fish and it races off downstream like a torpedo - What do you do?
1. Loosen off the drag and let it run.
2. Follow it downstream and try to get below it
3. Give it slack so that it may stop
4. Give it serious pressure to stop it (perhaps to the risk of losing it)
5. Give it side pressure from side to side to put it off balance.
6. Keep your rod up high to cushion the pressure
7. Any other suggestions.
