Pete D's Christmas Island Hand feeding GT's Video ***a must see***

I can't believe we haven't had anyone comment about this one, as I think its probably one of the best underwater vids we have seen on fishwrecked.

 

If you haven't seen it yet, you are missing out.

 

Easiset way to access it is via the Issue5 content page and straight to the vid page from there.

 

Its worth the download! Cool

Yep it certainly is some pretty spectacular footage... only problem when they're feeding like this is it's very hard to get them to eat a popper!

very true. They are educated fish... they won't accept anything with a hook near it.

Just checked it out, awesome vid! Check out the explosive speed when they're hitting the feed. It's funny how as an angler you can sometime think you're moving a bait or lure TOO fast for the fish but really you're far from the truth.

Thanks Andy - was good fun editing it, but as said, time consuming.

I did try a hookless popper early one morning (when dark) - big smash, but only once - very wise and well fed fish.  I've since heard, that a few sharks have now moved in on the area aswell.

Brad and I also tried a hookless popper whilst I was in the water filming - hoping to film the lure being pursued and smashed - no interest at all from the fish.

Cheers Pete

Agree Andy. Great video. Worth the watch. Anyone that has ever edited a video will appreciate the effort.
