Finally caught something

 Well here it is after moving here 18 months ago I finally have been able to post a photo of a decent fish not through a lack of trying tho many nights of sitting there catching nothing thinking there is no fish in Perth metro waters , Went out on Saturday night once again hoping for something and the Wife telling me its no point your not going to catch a thing , 5 sharks for the night 2 shovel nose , 2 banjo sharks , A nice gummy shark and big ray about 4 ft across wings nice night worth braving the freezing weather now to finally get that 1st mulloway in the bag ,
