This time Marco, had his first try with a new great Sandeel slugs – and the result was impressive – a big banana, showed up on the sounder, several times, in an area with big rocks and a shelf on a drop off. Intense fishing on the area with the medium size Slug (16.5cm) – resulted in a hard hit and solid resistance!
After a steady battle – the massive Italian predator was in the net – without any trouble. It turned out to a real biggie – HUGE proportions – 120 cm and 69 cm girth – tipping the scales at 18.6 kg (41 lb) – what a monster.
