When casting close to structures, considering the size of the fish,
they seemed to react well to larger size lures only.
This may be due to their strong territorial nature.

The I-cup produced a significant number of fish.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
This week was especially good with numerous double and triple hook-ups!
The general rule we have made for our selves, is that when ever some one hooks up,
everyone else shall immediately retrieve their lures.

Despite this, there were many attacks on our lures during the retrieval.

Komodo as expected, had a amazing ocean.
I was able to reconfirm the fact that one can land many GTs by accurately
approaching specific points and reading the drifting of the boat.

I can also say that, as there are monster size GTs attacking our lures at high rate,
one must be sure of their tackle and line system.

I am not sure whether it was due to this knowledge, but we caught and released 40 GTs
in the first half of the week followed by an additional 83 GTs for the later half.

Komodo will continue to be a place where I look forward to visiting again.
