POTM - metro landbased sambo

POTM -  metro landbased sambo

gday all, after waking up at the crack of the sparrows hoping for a hot sunrise tailor bite, the weather seemed too perfect for them to want to play ball. However the herring came and went in droves. A slight easterly was prevailing and the idea was made to live bait a herring under a balloon. 10 minutes hadn't passed less then 30 meters from sure when we noticed commotion around the balloon. Waiting anxiously for that almighty buckle and run, it came and I was on! as it headed for the horizon. My heart was hoping for a Mackie or a Tuna, but my mind said Sambo. Awesome fight as always. Cant complain :)


Got keen?
