Were you on a charter? There is a fair range of rods and reels in the background.

Sensational sambo

Tue, 2010-01-19 16:24

to open the account with - a 1300mm - 1400mm fish at a guess!

 

And please don't take this as having a shot at you, but holding them up by the tail is not very good for the fish - it elongates their spine and can cause them problems by putting a lot of weight pressure on their spine and can have a dramatic effect on its chances of survival upon release.

A much better practice is to cradle the fish in your arms under its guts and support its weight, kinda like your avatar pic with the dhuie.

Cheers, taken onboard Huggy. I got one photo cradling it and was happy with that. But sumone said to hold it up that way and the decky hoisted it up for me so held on for a quick shot. Just wanted it back in the water soon as possible to be honest.
