Land based Rankin

Buried under the cliffs with 30lb leader, one lucky capture. Great moment.

Catch of a lifetime. Some patience and skill required there I'd imagine.

Been there

It was some years ago and we went for a 4x4 drive north of Broome. Sat on the rocks at low tide and ate plenty of fresh oysters while downing a few beers. Hand line in the water in a hole in the reef and hooked up this massive Rankin. No skill, just a strong line and plenty of elbow juice LOL. 30lb leader was certainly not the go then.

First class camera work Chuddington, If you see the video of this capture I think its fair to say there was more ass than class. Pretty sure I was staring off into the sunset (not even paying attention). She went pretty hard on the 3500 game
