Nice video! Did I see that right though... did you set the hook on a dipsey fish?

That 'dipsey rod' was actually another downrigger rod spooled with 20# monofilament - not no-stretch braid or wire. So, yep you saw a hook set! With the drag set to click on an outside turn, a good rip on the mono dipsey wouldn't always result in a hookup (no different than a good rigger release) so a good hookset was needed. Wouldn't do it with braid or wire, however ..

Thanks for watching and we appreciate the feedback!
