Frequent GTs over 30kg and several over the 40kg mark. We are averaging about 10 GTs per angler per day with numerous other species thrown in as by-catch such as Bluefin trevally, emperors, green jobfish, grouper, big barracuda, mackerel and all the other usual tropical reef popper predators.
The outer reef slopes around Kadavu have offered up some spectaculor dogtooth tuna. Average size has been around 75lbs but the trophy fish of the month goes to angler Bill Busch from the USA and his monster 90Kg doggie. A new Fiji All-Tackle Record.
The poppers are still outperforming the stickbaits by at least 4-1. Seems the GTs here still prefer a big noisy crashing popper to a twitching swimbait.
