Hi Guys,

I had asked our forum members a couple of months ago for a good destination to fish in the month of May and after many suggestions from you guys finally zeroed in on New Cal .
Got in Touch with David of LPB and he was very truthful and told me that May was like end of season for them, the weather was not too good with lots of rains , some big seas, that the fishing would be in difficult conditions and yes a 5 day live aboard on “Antares” could be done.
But then we decided ( me and son Rahul) to test our fortunes and reached Noumea after travelling 30 hours, flying from Dubai to Seoul Korea to Noumea on the 23rd May evening. Got a day’s rest and were picked up by David on the 25th day break , the sky overcast, the waters choppy and we were yet to recover from the jet lag with a crazy time difference that told our body clock to sleep in the middle of the day, eat at mid night, and crap three times a day!!
We had our fair share of Gts before this trip but nothing prepared us for these super strong cold water GTs who scoffed at our 15 kg drags and treated us with disdain.
The incredible runs were nothing compared to the back breaking work out the fish gave us when near the boat as we puffed and pulled to bring the leader up.
On a rather philosophical note, the trip left us humbled, in awe of nature and all ego destroyed. GT Nirvana!!
Am posting a few pictures out of many (resizing is a pain in the a..se).
We had some good Gts pull ST 76!! Couple of Nomad Uluas swivels straightened out and our fair share of bruises from getting knocked around while arguing with the GTs. Evenings before retiring for the day saw us enjoy some excellent fishing with light tackle from the bommies.
And yes we were introduced to the pet GT.
I do declare that LPB is a professional operation; David and Seb know all you can know about GT and are fantastic human beings.

Those are some super GTs Jeen. Congrats...

So who hooked and landed that monster that is sharing Rahul's and your lap? You are the one looking exhausted in that pic.

Bobby,

It was more of Rahul's fish.He hooked that fish on a Hammerhead I cup which is a 220 gms almost a foot long popper. The fight was crazy I got involved after we saw colour. You are right That wee bit at the end was enough to wipe me out.Every hook up and fight was a near death experience for us.These Gts from the south pacific fight like nothing we have encountered till now.

Hi Jeen

great as usual, the pic with you in it after the pet monster being fed pic. is the rod you're holding a penn 7' 10-20 lb test travel rod and if so what is your opinion of it?

would love your opinion on the reel and line also.

Regards

David

Hi Pandim,

That rod is the penn alright but the rod is no good since it has a very short handle section and the reel sits too far towards the butt end. Iam still looking for a decent travel rod. We took it with us since we had restictions for the rod case length.
The Reels were certate 3500 hyper custom ( daiwa) - top reel and line used was PE 2 (braid) on it which is near 30lb test.

Jeen
