another few mulloway
Got a few more mulloway over the last couple of weeks. both where caught on 6-8kg rod and a little saltist 30.
first one went 14kg and was caught north metro, was going to release it but had swallowed the hooks and was bleeding bad so he was kept. Ate a fresh tailor fillet. i was fishing on my own so landing it was again difficult but still managed.
next one was caught at E sheds last night and was around 16kg, wasnt weighed or measured as i wanted to release it as fast as possible, took a live scalie.
for those who where wondering i gaffed it in the bottom jaw and lifted it up, took a few photos and climbed down a ladder with him and swam him for a few minutes before he was right to go
nothing better than seeing such a big fish swim free after all the hours put in.
letting this fish go raised a lot of eyebrows and i hope a lot more people realise how important these fish are and that releasing big ones will keep plenty of these fish around for us to enjoy for years to come.
always looking for a new challenge!!
