Hello Everybody,

a story from Konkan Coast:

Started a few days ago with a friend targeting GT from the Rocks. Arrived at the spot in the evening and didn't get anything, moved 200m to the next spot and got already accidentally a GT Strike on light tackle and lost it. After a short time got a strike on the popping rod didn t give the fish a chance and we landed it, made some pics and released it. Was good fun, a spot with deep water and many rocks, where you can land the fish only if you give him no chance. The Gt didn't manged to pull more then a couple of meters line from the reel, full force on the rod, good fun fishing......

The next morning one more hookup with a monster and the week part of my equipment the VMC 5/0 treble bended straight from the pressure.

Was especially a nice catch because it was only possible with help of many friends: Martin (Indonesia) who teached me everything he knows about Landbased GT popping, Jeff and Mr. Adhek (Bali) who gifted me two poppers, Sam gifted me the Braid, Scott the leader, Jochen went together on the trip and landed the fish.

Thanks to everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tackle used: No Name Popping Rod, Okuma Salina SA65, No Name 80lb Braid, 100lb Leader, Adhek Sportfishing Bali Popper: Big Gecko (19cm 160g)

Thanks for reading and on more thing guys: Yes for sure the spot is secret..... :)

cheers and tight lines
