As promised this week took me on another Kayak fishing adventure into some new waters off the central and southern coast of Java Indonesia. Three Giant Trevally where in my front hatch for the family, and after struggling to stay out of danger while battling these hook-ups for 20 minutes of hot action, I made a catch and release of a 20lb GT.
