Trophy fish and great effort, just personal preference but hopefully released to fight another day or destroy a few more lures.

 Mate of mine caught an 80kg Dogtooth up there about 30 years ago, got the whole episode on video. He's a man mountain and it made him piss, took about 40 mins to get it up.

Thats one hell of Trout..

Im in Timor waters now working on a un-manned platform, we had to ditch yesterdays left over lunches in. Recon some of the GT's would be 40-50 kg easy. Been a few massive Reds come up but cant make them out, There not trout or emperor..more like a Jack of some sort.
