That depends on whether you're using gloves or not and the place you're fishing at. If you're using bare hands, there's only so much pressure you can safely put on the line without risking line burn. If you're wearing gloves, then brute force away. Brute force isn't always a good idea as sometimes hook gets ripped out of the fishes' mouth. But for fishing in places with lots of cover and obstacles, brute force always a better choice.
