|Taken during our fishing stint in the Norther Territory, late May 2000. Chinook with a monster Golden Trevally. This Trevally took about 20 minutes to bring in. Golden Trevally portray some characteristics to that of large Red Snapper, where by when caught, they dive to the bottom and continuosly attack the line by pumping their heads.
The reason why they are called "Golden" Trevally, is that once they are caught, their skin turns a bright golden colour.
Notice the strain of Chinook's face while holding the fish. This Trevally weighed in at 9.5 kg, enough to make your arm tired, considering I like to take my time when taking such important photos !!
