However, I'll let Andy and Chris insert their story if they wish.

The reel I can believe, even the braid, but the leader is too light, and the hook is ridiculous.
Was that a circle hook? Size? Anyway, excellent patience in plating the fish, and with the leader like that, and, a bit of luck thrown in.
Congrats to all SA snap catchers. Truly amazing to get so many large fish in one day.
