Ok guys, this thread is more of a "WOW" dream thread than anything else, and just to share some of the UNBELIEVEABLE captures taken on Jig and poppers/Stickbaits around the world......

When you see these, you will realise why the tackle is at the absolute limit of cutting edge.....

These GT's are from Komodo Island with Capt Kukui.... Insane stucture and hectic currents.... These guys are fishing 16 kilos of drag on 130lb braid..... and are without a doubt the top GT anglers around.... these fish are being landed in under 10 minutes most cases...



Approx 60 kilos

 



47 Kilos

 















I really love this shot



 

 

40+ Kilo Yellowtail Taken on a Popper at the 3 Kings Islands in New Zealand



 

Massive Coral Trout taken on a popper - New Caledonia

 















More GT's from New Caledonia







 





 

 

I got plenty more which I'll post up soon... the above are all taken on Poppers or stickbaits just from New Caledonia and Komodo....

I'll add the Jigging Monsters and more from around the world soon....

If you guys have any shots of dream fish you'd love to catch or places you'd love to go, share them....

Chris - I was hoping you'd add some pics of your MONSTER Yellowtail Kings and Hapuka and Bass taken on jigs down on your end of the world.....

Hoping that 2009 will be the year I'll be able to add a few of my own pics and fish to this thread...

Andre, awsome pics there mate. Hopefully June/ July time you can join me this side and get a copper or 3 to add here.
I am going down next weekend (weather permitting) but unfortunately my jigging stuff will be in Moz with my brother so will have to catch them on normal tackle.
