It must be such disappointment when you found out it was a shark!

But it’s a great practice to reel in a big one. You just proved that you have such techniques to fool a big cautious fish, your fighting tactics with PE1.5 is efficient, your knots, drag setting and hooks are well prepared and tight, you have all it takes to bring this big one home. Double thumbs up to you sir!

    Hi Samuel
    Wow such a big fish on light gear. Big congratulations to you, it’s amazing what can be achieved with winding in yr catch with the rod tip down.

    Thanks Mark,
    Totos is right, I was little bite disappointed when I saw the shark, I was expecting a big fatty grouper, but when I saw the size of this shark (probably around 70kg), I started to feel very confident for the futur. Confident in my knots, braid, and hooks. Soon will start the season for big amberjack, I hope to have same success with them.
    Tanks again Totos to reveal us that game.

      Great job Samuel. You’ve done this Tai-chi practice. I’m sure it’s just a matter of time that a big fat AJ will take you on and you’ll be ready!
