20 Kg Dhufish

20 Kg Dhufish

First time fishing.  Didn't have any right handed reels.  All we had was a rod normally used for bait fish that could be converted to a left hand reel.  Nearly lost all my line, we had to chase it down with the boat and it finally came to the surface after several drag adjustments.
