The 200lb leader was heavily scuffed just above the crimp though so I don't think it would have held much longer.

Colours

 It looked amazing in the water all lit up with the blue stripes but lost most of that colour for the photo unfortunately. 

Stoked none the less.

The jaw always reminds me of a pair of tins snips when it's open like that!

Wahoo is still on my list.

 I caught all my wahoo on lumo Soft Grassy's this year, and lost two lures in the process. Same story as previous years.

This was the only one we managed to land.

Lost an oscar jr 502/506 and a UV/926 just after this on a suspected double hookup on much bigger wahoo. Became quite an expensive day.
