PB 19.1kg Dhu on jig and sounder shots of new tranny and 1871f gps plotter

well I didn’t expect to break a PB On my break weather was frighten terrible. But still sent it with a mate and decided drop on a couple of coral lumps and head in. The pictures are of the same lump on my 588 running low through a b260 and my new gps unit running high through a p66. The dhu went 19.1kilo and landed on 20 pound braid. I was stoked cos it took a lot of luck steering the boat and fighting the fish hahaha

Sure is mate, I didn’t even know I had hooked it as I was trying hold the boat on the lump was hard work in 2.5m seas. Then felt tail flicks and quickly locked up on it hahahluckily I had drifted some what far away from the reef and go lucky. Went ballistic on light gear. Could see it most of the fight to being shallow water hahaha
