Fishing locked drag

Post by Young_gun_fisho » Wed Oct 10, 2018 3:10 pm

I have a frustrating problem fellow forum members. I have one friend who always insists on fishing fully locked drag for some reason. Now, around the wharves, jetties and rocky areas I tend to fish fairly tight drag. However, fishing locked drag everywhere is quite ridiculous. He doesn't listen to my reasoning that he can pull hooks, his knots are shite :twisted: etc. Worse still, when he sees fish peeling line off my reel he scolds me and tells me to tighten up my drag :banghead: .Can you guys help me get to his thick skull that fishing locked drag everywhere is not a good idea by providing me with reasons? Thanks :mrgreen:
Disclaimer: this post is not to be taken seriously. I'm not bagging him or anything, it's just banter between mates :mrgreen:

Giving line is a sign of weakness
