Putting the Mrs onto some huge fish!

 I've been getting the Mrs onto fishing with me and she is more than happy to tag along here and there. Had some awesome times just back to basics catching herring with her or even banjo sharks and sweep we seen one arvo but a while back I took her along on one of our mega missions to try get her some real fish. She wasn't happy about getting up at 3am driving 1.5 hours then walking 1.5 hours to the spot but she did it and I'm so glad it was worth it or I would of never heard the end of it. She caught her first blue groper all on her own and it played out perfectly with me hoping for a nice small fish to eat her crab and a lovely little blue of 5kg popped up. Lucky because the next 2 we landed just after where 13 and 19kg so she would of really struggled haha. After the blues shut down we burleyed up and fished hard and got her onto a good smabo. I had to do a bit of sweet talking at the end to steer the fish close to the rocks but her first sambo around 17kg which is a very good fish. Bloody proud partner moment right there and thank god it payed off!!

A very thinking person who wears a life jacket when fishing from the stones, whose idea was it to wear one.

 I'm just glad she didn't

 I'm just glad she didn't hook the 19kg groper we got just after hers! That wouldn't of ended well at all. We let her blue go as we kept the 13kg one this day. The sambo was a surprise we normally get small kings which was the target for her to catch but no complaints with a big sambo.
