Good story. :lol: at least you got the rod back and you lost it to a cool fish, my buddy who shall remain nameless lost a very expensive setup to a big chub. lol. He left it barely out of the water while rigging another rod and splash the rod was gone. We know it was a chub because there were monster chubs right by the boat.

I would get rid of all the line on that thing, take it apart and rinse out, more like drench the thing in some fresh water.

You've never seen Trav smile soo big until he loses his rig and gets it back LOL. I was with him and I will say we went from having a great day to a horrible one just that fast. We turned around and all we saw was the worlds first flying rod and reel combo. :shock: But then I got a phone call on the way back with the goggles from my boy screaming like he won the lotto creaming "I GOT IT BACK, I GOT IT BACK" Epic win if you ask me. We'd like to thank Daiwa for making a kick ass reel that can hook a ray and a Penn Battle ROFL

It may be a bit expensive, but there is a product called Salt Away that is used for boat engines & hullsides. It works excellent & really dissolves the salt. There is also a version that has teflon in it. You can find it at any West Marine or other boating store. If it keeps an outboard clean internally, it'll do wonders for a dunked reel.
