 well done. nice way to pop the cherry. you must have got them when half asleep. usually they are good fighters and the bigger models just play dirty.

 Yea thanks was pre excited at first but thinking about how it fought i am pretty bumbed. You'd think that a fish of that size and rep would of done alot more than just 3 or so 5m runs

 I had a bit of a drift around Warnbro Sound this morning, butterfish everywhere, had a couple of big marks on the sounder though.

Gear size?

Thu, 2017-09-14 15:10

You don't mention what size gear or how deep you were fishing. Everything is relative.

 I think what he ment was the fact that a same size salmon, kingy (or any of the trevs fam for that matter), drummer, groper, and even a small shark can still manage to put up a good fight with the gear used, where as the dhuies do a few bursts and it's all over. Dosent mean they don't fight I'm just saying I think for him their fight is dull when compared to what else is out there.
