Not sure about the great shot there sherbs, looks like he's given BJ some serious grief there. Nice work mate, a great fish, didn't see any that big over here today. Your doing well in the springy, its 18 degrees in the gulf and bloody freezing!

10 rounds

Sun, 2008-07-27 10:25

Bit like going 10 rounds with iron mike in his prime.

Not the perfect shot but I've found you never get a second crack at these bigger fish after you've surprised them (or they surprise you).

Had to swim him back to the boat in a headlock. He wasn't happy.

22.5 degree at this spot Adam. Saw a huge chinaman but by the time I realised what he was he had cruised out of range. Be there next time hopefully.

You would have had buckleys trying to land that monster on a rod and reel.
Top effort BJ.

Great Bluey BJ.  Did the spear punch through?  Not a fish that you would want to get away.

Drilled straight through him Pete, lucky because the barb was the only thing keeping him on the shaft.
