To catch such a monster GT from the shore is an ultimate challenge for any fisherman. The huge ulua was caught in Hawaii where they specialize in catching big GT from the shore.

"that Big ass Jack looking thing" is Giant Trevally (GT),
pretty much the pinnacle of popper/jigger's lists world wide.

Imagine a 150# yellow jack on steroids..........
that sucker's gotta go 175-180#, unless that guy is reeeeel short!:D

someday, baby, someday........

Kil,

Did you see weight on that monster?

I heard the GT weighed 100 lbs caught off the shore in Tonga, not Hawaii.
The angler is Mr Fukui who is Japan Shimaon product tester.

that fish is definitely at an angle and the guy is sitting on the rock, but still a very big GT nonetheless. and still an accomplishment

catching Gts(ulua) from the rocks in hawaii is a fairly normal occurence. they use whole octopus for bait. heres a cool link for the 100 lb club in hawaii. click on the persons name to see their catch. all off the beach or rocks. shimano ulua rods have a metal sleeve on the butt section just for placing them in the rocks for rod holders.
