I would also be interested to hear about the tackle you were using - and how much longer your arms are now (Lol).

Rugged

Great stuff Rob. Looks like pretty rugged conditions to be popping and fish fighting in an open boat. Well done!

All the fish we caught were

Mon, 2009-06-22 16:11

All the fish we caught were tagged. Didnt manage any recaptures.

 

Colin this fish was caught on a Smith Komodo Dragon and a Saltiga 6000GT, i also use a Saltiga 6000GT and a Ripple Fisher Ultimo

John Yes the last day was pretty wild nearly went for a swim a couple of times. We came across some good fish in shallow water. This fish was caught in a blue hole no more then about 5 mtrs deep with bommies breaking the surface. The fish got me into a bommie but we manage to extract it out.

 

Cheers

That's a massive effort to get that out of a bommy - that is one serious fish.

Good stuff Jay looking foward to seeing some good footage. Some of the stuff we seen was awesome. 20 odd GT's pushing each other out the way trying to eat our poppers.
