Huge fish, especially for a

Huge fish, especially for a small reel. Must have been a fun fight. Perhaps thinking it was just a big annoying sambo for a while.

Not that it matters but is this an old pic or is the camera date incorrect?

but i still get a thrill looking at it it was f##@ing awesome , when that came into the boat we had a live 18kg dhu on the floor and that pink was so much more imposing to look at i'll never see one like that again!!!!  the reason some of my old photo's are going up is that adam has just set up a gallery for me and when you move the images they come up in latest photos!!  cheers

 Beast!Ryan since  you caught

Mon, 2018-02-05 21:59

 Beast!

Ryan since  you caught  that fish 8 or so years ago what else have you caught from the same spot? Does it consistently hold good pinks or is it one of those spots that can turn up anything  on its day or is it one of those spots that  has failed to catch anything of significance ever since?

Just curious to know mate as im sure  other are too
