Rochele dropped Adrian and myself off up current from a point so we could drift down onto the point where the fish should have been holding. It was my first time in the water with the new Pole a 10foot Maverick. We started spotting a few yellowtail below us about 10m down. I dropped down to have a look to see if there was a big one in amongst them, I had been down for about 45 seconds and with no big Yellowtail in the school I decided to test the pole out on a large Trevally that where hanging around with the yellowtail. As i swam towards them they started to swim away, I took a long shot and connected a bit low but with the pole having a sliptip it held well. It was a short fight and when i got the Trevally in my hands I ickyed it and Rochele came over in the boat and I passed it to her and she put it on ice in the chillybin
