hey guys came across this old thread and it got me thinking back on some of the first trips i ever did to the seychelles!!

lucky enough to start catching some of the biggest fish of my life with lots of heart break stories along the way!!! especially about the one that got away and there were plenty that just absolutely smoked us with no chance of stopping them!!

cheers
Richard

Magic stuff Eeds.... Defingtely a Land of Giants those outer atolls man... I count myself very lucky to have been able to fish Cosmo and Farquahar back in 2005... just wish I'd been the Jigging adn Popping Junkie I am now back then, not just a fly junkie...

Beautiful fish mate, congrats! I'm guessing this was on the Trini and "Long Rod" you used on your first few trips? Must have HURT!! ;-)

Cheers, good to see you back on line here,

Andre - JigStar Africa

Awesome stuff Arno, stoked you got into some epic fish...

Here is one taken in New Cal last week... estimated 65 kilos....


Malcolm Crane - New Caledonia fishing with LPB - Pic courtesy of Brandon Khoo and GTpopping.com.

These guys are probably the finest GT anglers outside of the Japanese, and fish ALOT, I would say 65 kilos is a conservative estimate on this fish...

Bruce - Yip, on a popper... a small one apparently... the report is defintely worth reading... apparently the best trip ever between Brandon and Malcolm, which coming from two of the most seasoned GT poppers, guys who fish 5 Nomad trips, and 4 New Caledonia trips a year at least, thats saying something.... 3 fish over 55 kilo, numerous over 40, countless over 25...
