First big mulloway

Hey guys

 Haven't really posted much on this forum l'm 17 and do a lot of fishing around the Bunbury area. The one fish that has been on top of my bucket list has been the mulloway it's been about 4 years of chasing these fish to of finally had success. Last Monday arvo l decided to head down after work to a gutter l like to fish for tailor and with a strong sou wester blowing and plenty of weed getting washed around l had a good feeling after 30 minutes l was about to pack it up with the weed just getting to much but finally on my last bait l had good run after 4-5 long runs l finally managed to bring it in unfortunately l was by myself so l had to land this fish myself and l knew my hooks weren't strong enough to drag this fish up on to the beach so it was a desperate run into the water to grab this fish my first grab was straight into the gills which wasn't a smart idea. This is one fish l will never forget. Weighed in at 17kg and measured in at 1200mm

Rewarded for the effort. Sore hands will be forgotten but that fish definitely won't be.

Well done.
