KC's GT - Fishwrecked fishing video

Here's the first instalment of KC's and Steve's poppered up GT's. You will have to wait for the second instalment to watch Steve's popper get smashed off the surface. Here is a nice little teaser of around 20kg. Enjoy.

No doubting

No doubting that some damage does get done, but this fish has a lot better chance of survival than one thats ikijimied and bled...

Also, note that they were barbless hooks and in the gill plate. I wasn't there, but can make that out from the video.

Some chance is better than no chance when it comes to un-tasty sports fish IMO.  Mind you in these waters, something which bleeds doesn't stand much hope.

John - you will get to see

John - you will get to see it. twice i believe.

Matt - It was not hooked through the bottom gill; in fact the gill arches were in no way compromised. The middle treble was caught just below the gill plate. Trebles do not usually injure the gills directly; however it can sometimes catch below the gill plates and around the area below the 'wings' as illustrated here. Also, there were no copious amounts of blood (a mere flesh wound, just like one in the mouth). In my opinion, this fish has a very high probability of post-catch survival.

Having said that, trebles pose a fair bit of damage, and are being phased out by some in favour of singles.

Anyway, on to topic, thanks for viewing and I promise the second video is better :)
