looks like a nice fat fish

looks like a nice fat fish too, probably closer to 30kg.

isn't it ironic, spend 4 days at the montes and then get a bigger fish from a 1/2 day trip so close to home.

I was only saying to Brad when we were out there how lucky you guys are to have such a good, fun fishery so close to home. Guys pay thousands to catch fish like that and you can do it for 20L of fuel.
