As all fisherman know, a fish on topwater is so much more exciting than one you can't see take your lure. GT's Giant Trevally have to be one of the meanest fish you can catch on a surface lure...
The braid and leader I run barely changes no matter what the technique!
Braid: Sunline Monster Battle

Leader: Sunline Big Game Shock
Big game shock leader has been designed for anglers chasing the larger sports-fish of the world and has gained a reputation of a leader that can be relied on when targeting that fish of a life time.
Commonly used for trolling for big pelagics like tuna and marlin, jigging for deep-water monsters like kingfish and samsonfish and popping for massive GT’s.
Manufactured using Sunline’s triple resin process, this nylon monofilament leader has great abrasion resistance, knot strength and stretch properties. It has also been treated for better UV resistance to avoid damage from the sun. Big Game comes in larger hanks to avoid memory which is especially important in the larger line classes.
Line classes: 40lb to 330lb
