good photo and well done on the release.

Yeah, I'll 2nd the POTM...

Mon, 2014-05-12 20:52

...great looking fish, good lighting, and you really captured the atmosphere with the sand and water...so much nicer than all the dead mulla shots in a pergola with a bbq/wheelie bin/clothesline in the background!

 

Actually...the jigged dhuie shot in your avatar is of a similar composition! Top stuff...thanks for posting!

Cheers guys, I reckon it's all about the photo's so I can share a great catch and remember it. Buying expensive camera's has definitely paid off. Couldn't bring myself to kill one and don't need to either. The fight wasn't long it was just hard to turn up and down the beach. Released as soon as it was put in the water, couple of kicks and it was off.

Released that's what makes a rewarding catch

Mon, 2014-05-12 22:23

When you release a great fish you have caught and see it kick away strongly that's when the real pleasure kicks in. imo

 I can comfortably say it was 17-18kg but I know it was heavier because it was bigger than my last that weighed 18kg, no more than 20 though.
