I just received an email from Wes’ cousin Tim Hansell who lives in Cairns.
Mate got this small black trolling solo on a Pakula micro sprocket ( lumo ) using a Saltiga 4500/Smith KGS70MH combo & the lure was rigged with a single Gamakatsu SL12 hook with Sunline FC100 ( 80lb ) Flurocarbon leader. Fight took about 25 min and was a ton of work by myself in about 15 knots of wind. Bloody unreal fun and got real acrobatic which was nice . Caught inside the reef off Cairns.
Cracking fish, especially solo! Can’t wait to see some more from Tim!
