52.50kg Bass Groper yesterday 31/1/2014 * Pending WA & Australian record!!

Good mate Steve enjoys fishing out in the super deep and does well. We were talking recently and he said " I want to get a big bass groper Ryan " 
No worries I have a few cheeky spots that hold fish ie 30-40kg Bass Groper so lets go when the weathers suitable. Steve mentioned he was going away for work and Friday (31/1/14) was ther only day! 


I said the weather is very average but Steve owns a 53ft (Nebraska Charters) and he said common mate let's do it ....... mmhhhhh ok!!!


We threw ropes early ie 4am and off we went, we pulled a few fish from Steve's spots ie greyband etc but Steve was keen to hunt for a bass! 


By now the wind was up (even more) and I said we'll go to this spot and give it a go ...... searching searching searching and nothing! 


I said I've got another spot near by and its a bass lump with hard limestone and a hidey hole for a biggen! 


A quick steam and we were back to searching ....... the Furuno sounder looked the goods and I said that's gotta produce ...... Steve drops and within a short time of the baits being on the bottom Steve was on! 


After about a 45 plus minute fight (maybe longer) a massive spa bath of bubbles was hitting the surface about 40 meters out from the boat and one very very big bass groper on the surface! 


We gaffed it and it took every bit of help to get it over the gunnel. I said to Steve that's bigger than the State record which was 46kg on my boat by kasey back in 2009! 


We got it to my home and weight it on very accurate scales( ie the one I used with Kasey State record fish) and it read 52.57 but after 3 times it fluctuated by a kilo but close enough! 


Steve went into MAAC club after leaving my house and they weighed it on Certified scales and went 52.50kg and a pending new State record and Australian record as the Australian record is 49kg in NSW 2004! 


Despite the conditions being very average Steve's boat eats up the conditions and very stable. Congrats to Steve on the trophy Bass Groper and happy to help mate. Steve is getting it taxidermy and the fish going to Fisheries Research after that . It was a great day with yourself and Corey (the human fish scale ha ha)



Cheers
