Another big dhu on jig

 Decided on an early knock off Friday and did a run out to some proven ground and first drift spotted a couple of familiar looking targets on the furuno , jig jig , hooked up on the gomoku and just couldn't stop it or pick it for that matter.

After 10 ofd minutes of chasing and trying to figure out the taker I was 100 % convinced I had foul hooked a sting ray due the constant thump thump on the rod tip so I made the call to lock uo the drag on the 5000 stradic , thumb the spool and give it shit no matter the result

After another 5 minutes all came to light when a solid dhu that went 23.2 kg surfaced 20 metres from the  boat

Over the years I have bee fortunate enough to catch quite a few of these large specimens but This one took the cake for fight , with the jig completely swallowed  and the leeder hooked under the pec fin this fish fought like no other
