    If you are on a budget, don't like crowds then Kurt is your man. Passionate fisherman and you can watch the pigs come through when the tides out followed by the dogs along the reef.

    Would be bale to fulfil your land based desire too.

    I have caught fish that size in lesser places but they were after 1000's of casts, which you could argue made it more worth while. Also we caught a decent dogtooth, Bluefin trevally (lupo), MU (an arsehole red snapper thing) barracuda etc. Highlight was yellowfin tuna casting stick baits too.

    They are great fish, but I rate a 25kg kingfish on a stick bait in 15m of water as comparable easily. Some may see it different but none of us had any issues landing big GT's

    Is there a time of the year that is better than other times of the year?

    Sagittaria poisoning is not a great way to go

    Our slightly smaller versions are great but in the tropics they accumulate poison from coral fish as above.
