Record?

Tue, 2010-05-18 13:49

5.8kg is the biggest I spotted in a google of Aussie recods. Must be close to that? Almost certainly the biggest caught on a handline off a rig.

That fish would clearly give 5.8kg a shake. It's the biggest I've seen taken in WA if it was in fact caught here, any more details Doopa??

46kg

46kg is the record for a rainbow runner over here in Pohnpei. So I'm sure there are some monsters off the WA coast somewhere.

  where is Pohnpei ? yeh the runners are a pretty looking fish . i first thort ther were yellow tailed kings , but new they never got up that far and also thort that the runners never that big . up and out wide off broom by scott reef have seen em up around the 6 feet long but never hooked one . they must be well up in the weight range then .

As of June 2009 the state record was 4.760 caught at the Mackerel Islands in 1987, so you wouldn't think it would take much beating??
