yep its worth losing a weight then a lure. Lighter break off line. When bouncing off bottom drifting with a cold one in your hand.I'll give you a tip Joe..........
EVERY TIME you get a hit with a trolled jig reel her in and cutoff four or five feet of line and retie the lure. The smallest ding on mono is where it is going to break. I have a habit when fishing in any environment to put two fingers on that last few feet and give it a feel. You are going to save a lot of expensive lures and bring in more lunkers like the fine one in your pix.
I guess we will be eating beer battered Sardinero manana en la noche after you setting off my grouper alarm!
Great catch Joe and you didn't even have to run forty miles out.
