    Default Blue Planet II & Gaint Trevally

    I’ve had this recorded for a while and just watched it.
    They have Gaint Trevally jumping out of the water and catching birds mid flight.

    Really freaking cool!

    I’ve never fished for them and I’ve never seen a real one except on TV and in magazines.

    Do they go aerial when hooked?

    That would be GIANT Trevally? No they don't jump,just pull pull and pull some more.

    All other fish pale in comparison...should be named Great Trevally

    Well I wouldnít go that far. IMO, many fishes are great. From the small mountain trout to the giant tarpon. Certainly the sight of a feeding school of GTs on the flat you are fishing pushes an adrenalin surge. Having one smash your fly at the rod tip in 18Ē of water does too. Then the run. OMG. Wait .. nevermind .. maybe the GT does make all other fish fade into the realm of boring. I have to wait another four months to chase them again. But I go for Permit in four weeks! Not as big and not as aggressive, but certainly an adrenalin rush. Depends on what you are after. If itís the fight after a hunt on the flats .. GT. If itís something else .. well .. something else .. and thatís okay too!

    I've experienced them all and much more. I repeat..all other fish pale in comparison.

    But what if you can't find a discarded flip-flop to make your "bird fly" out of? Great vid, BTW.

    Unfortunately theyíre all too common. Pretty much every tropical island in the Indian Ocean that is open to the ocean is a repository for all sorts of floatsam including, for some unexplained reason, hundreds of flip flops. On Alphonse (part of the same chain as Farquhar) they get the children to patrol the beaches and make sea creature sculptures out of them.
