About the Giant Trevally

The giant trevally is distinguished by its steep head profile, strong tail scutes, and a variety of other more detailed anatomical features. It is normally a silvery colour with occasional dark spots, but males may be black once they mature. It is the largest fish in the genus Caranx, growing to a maximum known size of 170 cm (67 in) and a weight of 80 kg (176 lbs). 

How to catch them

The most effective way to catch a GT is with popping and fly fishing, but also with jigging you can have great results.

This fish is very aggressive by nature, it will attack everything it see.

Lures are heavy and hard to cast, the same with the #10 or #12 fly rods and huge flies. Fighting belt is a must if you want to feel your arms after hooking one of these.
