I am a relative newcomer to shorefishing. I have had some success on rock marks for cod however landing fish from rock marks is a real problem even with heavy tackle. Does anyone have any tips on how to safely hoist the fish up without too much wear and tear on reels etc. Also, I have been using Fireline braid 50 lb b/s which gives really good bite indication but it does not seem to lay evenly across the spool of my reel (Abu 7000 levelwind). I have nylon mono backing below the braid and wondered if this was the problem. Thanks and a good New Year when it comes.
