Necessary Amount of Drag?
« on: June 10, 2019, 03:46:33 PM »

What is the necessary amount of drag you should have for froggin'? I've seen some guys use reels with 11-12lbs. and I've seen some guys use reels with 15 - 20lbs. of drag. It stands to reason if you latch on to a big girl around 6 or 7lbs. and you're dragging almost that amount of slop/pads etc. with her that you'd want a higher amount of drag on your reel. What's your take?

No matter how much we know about fishing there is always more to learn!

For frogging I use a Zillion HD with the drag locked down and 60lb braid. Get them to the top fast and ski them to open water or the boat.
