24lb common carp in the tail. Thankfully was on orange vespe hollow with 8lb hl and 12 kammy animal. Spent a full ten minutes leaning into the pole with my full bodyweight to keep it inches from the snag. Took half hour to land. I could not have pulled any harder if i tried. Shimano beastmaster margin is bombproof..i was absolutely knackered after landing it!
