...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!

 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.
