Well here's it is fellas ,enjoy
Thanks for all the kind words ,there is a fair bit a not so pleasant language due to the adrenaline pumping throw my veins so keep the youngest ears blocked ,most questions from the forum will answered when you view the vid. ;-)
There's not much music so you may get into what was happening as if you were in my seat!

Marty i have a TLD 15 Shimano, 30 pound mono on that reel (generally use 20 pound )
Shimano T-Curve 400 Deep Jig Spin ,My other setup is a Shimano 200 T-Curve overhead with another Tld 15 ,20 Pound mono ,luckily i opted for the heavier set that morning and needed to break in the new TLD 15 i won from the North Straddie Comp with the Kayak Specialists.
Large pink Skirt ,38 pound wire ,6x strong VMC treble and the usual pillie /slimey rig setup
I dont use leader on any of those rigs.

Nice vid, great fish.

In the event you aren't already aware of this, Wahoo makes sensational sashimi.
Cut across the smaller tail section to get steaks from each side - just melts in the mouth.
