SAVAGE GEAR’s ace Italian consultant Marco Giudici’s is just not resting! He is so impressed with the “down shot” method, that he is almost addicted!

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.
