Right on! My buddies and I just got back from the Villages(Clark Harrison posted a video here 2/26). Ryan Edde and I targeted big GT's by painfully reef trolling(which worked). We also specifically asked Tennaki and others to get us to GT spots when wading and we each got about 30 fish in the week but of course less bonefish. Often at Paris flats we'd both have hookups in the 5-15 lb range so we could have double pictured it but did not. I'm not a purist and did some spin casting in the surf one day but with single hooks on my popper( non pinched trebles mess the dudes up). It worked.
But chumming kills the fish, destroys the fishery, and generally seems uncool to me. GT's should be plentiful, aggressive, fun, and profitable for the islands.
