Project Description

Michael Sutherland was fishing around Fitzroy Reef off Seventeen-Seventy chasing coral trout when his 7-inch soft bait got hit by this mammoth 1.7m long spanish mackerel.  Michael says he feels lucky he was using Black Magic 30lb Tough Fluorocarbon because he knows it has extra high abrasion resistance which was needed to survive “the teeth of a brute spanish like this!”.

The fight went on for a nerve racking 30minutes.  Well done on your trophy catch Michael!
