    No Sealocants sorry.

    Ok here goes:
    1. Chaetondon Vagabundus - Butterfly fish and few other butherfly species, it gives a good fight for its size
    2.Chrysoblephus Angilicus - Englishman and many other reds
    3. Freshwater Pike in Italy
    4. Pterois Miles - Lion Fish and he stung my hand like hell, had to put my hand in a boiling kettle to sooth the pain which was like been smacked repetively with a hammer
    5.Scomberesox Saurus - Saury
    6.Pomacanthus Semicirculates - Anglefish and this was an awsome fight
    7.Istiophorus Platypterus - Sailfish
    8.Hemiramphus Far - Halfbeak
    9.Echeneis Naucrates - Remora
    10.Albula Vulpes - Bonefish, and I was so dissapointed with the size of the fish for the big fight he gave

    GT is the name for Giant Trevally, or as we call them Ignobilis in SA, the rest are kingies.
