20lb platypus superbraid.

i got absolutely spanked by that GT. took a disturbing amount of line from the little calcutta. had the drag cranked as far as i could crank the star with my barehand, and used some thumb also. gully did well to maneouvre the boat so i could pull the fish away from a 30m vertical wall.

he also did well by attracting the GT in the first place. gully was kind enough to hook a stinkin barracuda you see. a gang of GT's came screaming in to attempt to consume the said cuda, and gully kept it in the water so i could have a crack at the gt's. second cast, flash of silver, and on. violent struggle, with much stress throughout the whole battle.
