I hooked into a large one while trolling a few years ago, and believe me it was pulling me of my seat...they are really strong also because the way they use their flat body against you

Yup Fred,
I totally respect them. GT is a different ball game. I've been busted so badly by them I shudder to think. Also cost me a packet in terms of lost lures. I'll post a couple of pics of GT I caught when I'm back in the office. Am travelling right now.

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.
