First GT

First GT

Tough day but managed to get my first gt. Caught him on a Smiths stickbait, estimated around 20kgs. Had a few mackies side swipe my lure but no hook up. Got busted off by one much bigger few casts earlier. Eddy is a great guide , worked hard to put us on the fish, the swell was huge around the reef so made the fight a lot tougher. Looking forward to going up again next year hopefully get a bigger one.

GT popping is very addictive, that's one expensive fish.
