Nice little metro Hoo

Nice little metro Hoo

Not quite the billfish I was looking for but a nice metro surprise. Had a blast on the dolly's as well but geez they are gunshy, not firing until very late in the arvo.

Very nice hoo! Was only a matter of time before one was caught at the FAD's with all this warm water we've been having. Expecting a few to be caught Jurien way this year too.

Guessing you got him on the billie gear?

 

(also, your photo says 2008, so was in an earlier capture or just the camera date off?)

Turn that shit off!

Its too hard to fix images with it on and you can always use the file creation date to age pics, asuming the clock is set right ;)

yep Tim - I am hoping it was a bit of karma for my poor trip up north, now I just need to hook a nice blue off Jurien and I will have forgotten about most of the pain and frustration. At least it look like you should get some action.

Top metro capture. Lucky to get it in without wire though. I'm finding they always hit the front of the lure and if they miss it is always early resulting in lost lures if not using wire or hooks to the side of the face if they miss close enough to hit the wire.
