Hi Guys,

Just wanted to share this great images of a Big Blue "exploding" near the boat on the hook up pitch bait, one of the 5 we caught last Sunday on our local Tournament

Love your work Fedu.

 You guys have an exceptional bill fishery in Angola and you have taken to it like a duck on water  (clap) (clap)

Was that on 50lb stand up?

Thanks guys :)

The first fish is on a Shimano Tiagra 30 LRS with beefed drag the second one on a Tiagra 50 LRS both with 80lb line and 400lb leader

40lb of drag on full the small one and I had to use it on full on two fish that day, the handle is a bit small but I just love the free spool and the weight
