Success at last!
Well finally after 30+ hours of trying including landing hammerheads, bronzies and numerous large rays plus a couple of unstoppables my persistence has paid off.
Last night of all nights was the windiest and roughest.. but I had a good feeling and fair enough got the telltale slow run of a mulla playing with my bait just after the turn of the tide, engaged the baitrunner, struck and whammo on!! A fun little fight followed for about 10 minutes with some nice runs and big head shakes before I had him close to the rocks, backed off the drag and tried to find a spot to wash him up high on the rocks, well the fish and the swell had other ideas and before I knew it she was stuck in between some rocks way down near the water line. I had a long gaff so wasn't too phased at this stage but the more we tried to retreive it the further it got stuck, anyway after half an hour of what can only be described as a very wet and vocal ordeal the fish was safely in my hands. This was followed by hoots and high fives all round as we sat and admired the beauty.
As you have probably gathered this is my first mulloway and i'm very glad to have this monkey off my back (so is the missus)
Not a monster but big enough for a first
