March POTM Entry - Coral Trout
After last years cracker mid-water Coral Trout at Abrolhos, the spot was Waypointed as 'Wazza's Trout Spot'. So visiting this lonely Waypoint in 45m again last month brought back great memories of what was accomplished. When the skipper Craigo gave us the nod to drop, I could only imagine what would come of my plastic offering. It only just touched the bottom before my Magic Eye was loaded up. A few tense moments of reel screaming action wondering if I was clear of the bottom and any grey suits, resulted in this colourful specimen. Shy of my 810mm one from the very same spot last year, it was still a good fish at 700mm. Pretty stoked with that!
