Finally beat you big LB king!!!

Finally beat you big LB king!!!



It's taken me more than three years of getting busted up, smoked, bricked etc. You name it and big kings off the stones have a way of making you and your gear feel completely inadequate...


Yesterday evening I finally landed this one... very very satisfied and pumped!!!

Got to be pumped with that one. Did you get the length and weight of the kingy?

 You are making a habit of these big LB captures. I reckon between you and Daniel W you have the "big land based fish" gig well and truly sussed.


Great reward for years of effort.


POTM contender for sure.

Thu, 2011-01-13 20:39

 Cheers guys,

She was 1.41 meters and 18 kg's, as Chris said she was very lean.  It nailed a ballooned live herring right as the sun disappeared over the horizon. The gear used included a Daiwa monster mesh, van staal, 65lb toughline, 5 or so meters of 100lb leader and a lot of luck...

Mmm the real LBG season down here usually starts at the end of feb...I can't wait as Im spending my first march in Albs for three years so should be able to tangle with many more seriolas!

That is one serious Hoodlum , well done on an awesome capture and Adam might as well announce the POTM winner for January now , that's gonna take something extraordinary to beat it !!!!

I have some wild memories of tangling with those big boys off the stones around Jervis Bay , in particular Devils Gorge , man they go hard at that size , so again congratulations .


Just one more cast , honest !!!

Sun, 2011-01-30 22:49

Even if you fished from rock every day for 3 years you will still be wishing for a 10kg plus dhu to come in that close and grap your bate,
Ps you had that POTM prize in the bag till a 100kg+ marlin was caught at Jurien fads..... If only he waited a couple of days to post it. Don't worry mate I'll still vote for ya
