 Thanks guys. Yeah was a great fight, thought i was gonna loose him at one point when we did a massive run, before he charged at he boat allowing me to gain some line before he nearly spooled me again. 

@Lloyd, very funny mate. Can't say i can tell the difference between you and the fish in your picture though buddy :P Will be good to go out again when im back home thought mate, especially now your gonna be getting all the good gear in at tackleworld down there ;)
