First metro Mulloway
headed out to the north mole on saturday night with a mate hoping for something big.
Got there aroung 6ish and jeez was it packed, managed to find a patch of rock and out went the rods. were there for about and hour when we hear the stripping of line from a reel, not ours of course but the bloke 10metres to the left of us went pver and watched him fight it for about 10 mins, when he pulls this absolute horse of a mulla next to the rocks, straight down i go and give him a help netting and hauling it up the rocks. it went 128cm and he was saying that the biggest fish before was a tailor good on him fish of a lifetime.
after a high five and a quick chat it was straight back sitting in front of my rod hoping for something. bout 20mins later my line just goes screaming you beauty, set the hooks and hold on, managed to slow it down when snap goes the line, f@#k. dont know if i tightened the drag too much or dodgy knot but thats fishing i suppose. line is re-tied and a nice fresh fillet of snook is put on and casted out, wouldnt have been in for 5 minutes when something inhales it and off it goes. bang set the hooks and im in, this time made sure i didnt lock the drag,put up a very nice fight would have taken 20 mins and mate was calling it for a shark when up pops one beauty of a mulloway next to the rocks. quickly gaffed and hauled up onto the rocks.
Phew was i stoked, couldnt wipe the smile off my face, still cant, been chasing a metro mulla for years and feels good to finally get one.
dont know the weight, but went 121cm.
1 from the beach is worth 10 from a boat
