For many, it’s the giant trevally or GT, and from the name itself, you can already have an idea on why it’s a popular and prized target. Inhabiting rocky or coral reefs around northern WA, full-grown GTs typically weigh 20 to 40 kilograms and measure at least 1.7 metres long.
Some of the most serious anglers use innovative tackles and other technologies to catch the largest GTs (some around 70 kg in size!) and give it the best chances of surviving once it’s released back into its dwelling. You also need other vital preparations, just like in any sportfishing trip, to make most of the experience. Here are some tips from Getaway Outdoors Perth fishing shops.
