Time to update this thread...

A recent feral camping trip to the sand islands off the southern end of the Bazaruto Archipelago in Mozambique saw me there for the first 5 days, with two good buddies, Bertus and Earl ( of Hellsgate Lodge ) MISSIONING for 5 days, and only getting in about 4 hours dolid fishing due to hectic logistics... only managed the one big Sea Pike Barracuda which I posted before, and a couple sharks...
As luck would have it, I had to bail back to work in SA, and the day after I left, Bertus and Earl ( who were staying for 10 days ) bumped into some mates and moved the camp over to Magaruque Island, moved into a house with a private chef, and proceeded to thrash the GT's.... bear in mind, we had been completely feral camping, illegally, so had to hide ourselves in some sand dunes, MILES from anywhere...
 
Anyway, stoked the boys smacked some decent fish after I left.
 
Berus has been chasing a decent GT for 9 years now, its his unicorn.... he found his unicorn on this trip!
 
And then some...
 
Between them, they managed 9 more GT's over 20 kilos, including 2 x 35 kilo and 1 x 38 kilo with a handful between 10 and 20 thrown in....
Earl managed two fish on back to back casts.... the boys were busy tagging his first fish, and he reached over, yanked the DarkStar/Heru Ulua out the GT's mouth, put in a cast and BANG, was onto number 2.... the first a 25 kilo model, the second a 35 kilo, both fish to the boat in under 8 minutes...
 
Tackle used and supplied by us at JigStar Africa:
Rods - Jigging Master GT Monster 7'8" and 8'6"
Lures - DarkStar/Heru Ulua and Wahoo Stickbaits
Braid - Jerry Brown Hollowcore 130lb ( go big or go home hey! )
Reels - Stella 10000FA with 20000FA spool ( one of my personal reels!! ) and a new Penn of some sorts which Bertus was testing for pure fishing, NOT the Torque... he had it loaded with 100lb whiplash!!!
 
Leaders were 170lb FISHERMAN which was on my Stella, and 130lb Berkley Leader on the Penn... both leader set ups using PR KNot connections, and lures were rigged with a mix of ST 66, ST 76 and Gamakatsu GT recorder trebles pilaged from my stash!! :)
 
 
TO RIDE, SHOOT STRAIGHT AND SPEAK THE TRUTH.

Snuck out at dawn for a solo mish the other morn, my usual possie failed to produce so went prospecting and pulled this skinny 19.5kgr (weighed) out from 5m of water, pulled the hooks on another slight better one at the boat and ended morning with a scrappy 12kgr.

Cool! Interesting addition to surface lures' range of target species! You catch all the fish, it's not fair! ;-)
