south metro balloning success

south metro balloning success

 Decided to go for a balloon on the strong southerly got down there early to beat the crowds. 2 mullet were about 250m out under balloons by 6:30ish. Around 7 I noticed alot of slack line on the overhead, after winding in around 50m of slack the fight began. A long sluggish fight of around 45 minutes ended with this beauty. Close to 7 foot and a guesstimate 50-60kg. It just shows you put the hours in and eventually it will go your way. Stoked to say the least :)
