Interesting capture there

Interesting capture there Jay. Not a bad sized one either from the little I know about the species. Do they pull hard for their size?



Col, I think they are a more topwater/pelagic fish. Kinda similar habitat to tailor or ytk's (a fishing video I saw had them casting SPs into washy areas around a bomby and picking them up). Not too common over here I think though.

Yes they pull very hard for their size, I beleive they're closely related to YTKs so that would explain it :)
