Nice day on the water all things considered Shannon. Sorry to hear about you losing fish. You might have finished in the top 10. But heck 28 out of 200 is pretty darn good. I have broke 50lb braid flippin also. I am convinced it is the knot getting stuck in the hook eye gap and that sharp piece cuts the braid like a knife would. Braid is great for some things but when it comes to sharp objects braid is the worst line in the world. I wish there was an easy fix for that issue. It doesn't happen on mono because mono doesn't move around in the eye like braid does. Maybe super glueing the braid in place is what to do?
