whats the perfect setting for drag on a fishing rod when your fishing 3 pound bass or smaller?

also..how do you get the fish out of the water when you have the drag high on the rod doesnt the line keep coming out of the reel so you cant get the fish out unless you grab the line? and do you have the turn the handle of the reel to set the hook on a fish? if you just pull up the rod would it do anything since there is drag on the line?

Will an ocean fishing rod with a maximum limit of 14 pounds be able to support a 25 pound line?

I recently bought an ocean fishing rod that said maximum limit of 14 pounds. However, I need one that can support 25 pounds. The man at the store told me that this one would easily work with 25… However I don’t know which one to trust. Answers?
I meant line by the way, not fish size.
