  1. Awesome day thanks @Pickles and @big Neil. Hopefully the Kingies are hungrier tomorrow!
  2. It's just about feel, If you have the drag done up too tight the fish could turn hard and run with the drag too tight and snap you off. If you are gaining line and using the 'grab the spool' method you can get more power and leverage and then still use your feel to let go of the reel when the fish takes a hard turn. In similar situations when the fish is literally about to finish you into a snag grabbing the spool is necessary because you may loose it anyways, I have landed fish that were about to brick my by grabbing the spool.

  3. Great report and write up. Nice photos!
  4. Awesome work mate what a cracker of a fish. That's awesome!
  5. Great report Pickles, really interesting read!

  11. After a little bit of research about the freshwater capabilities of Trevs especially Giant Trevally I came across something incredibly interesting. Giant Trevally are primarily a saltwater fish. However the young ones growing up in the estuaries are very highly adapted at tolerating freshwater. Lake Taal in the phillipines is home to the only true freshwater GT. Lake Taal prior to around 1754 was a saltwater lagoon connected to the ocean but after a serious eruption from the Taal volcano in 1754 the lake was sealed and gradually became fresh. The saltwater fish, the GT and some other sal

  13. Probably not going to want to launch or retreive at low tide
