Moving the Boat
Keep the fight within 50 yards of the boat. Having too much line out increases the reel's drag due to a decrease in spool diameter, so back off the lever on long runs. Move the boat to recover line and stay in front of the fish whenever possible. Surfing a large fish down-sea is easier than dragging it against the sea. For the end game, turn the boat into the sea and plane the fish to the surface.
