Mate, she's still out there - last seen chasing pelicans & kiteboarders near the beach @ brighton le Sands..

Best bait to use is an emo kid on a 12/0 :biggrin2:

Chop - No scales, and brag mat only went to 60cm... I cant remember the truth any more.... She was Big, Heavy, and I tell ya we both felt a connection on that cold August day....oh I miss her so...

Thanks lads, Yeh she's a beauty.. Not much of a fight until she saw the boat, then some heavy headshaking but when I saw her I was pretty surprised by her size.. :1yikes::biggrin2:

Ive caught smaller that have given more curry, I think the older ones know we are going to release them so are a bit more chilled about the fight....

this one felt bigger than the bay lady, half the size but more grunt..

Mine looks so small !! 60cm; 8lb fireline; 2-4kg bream rod .. skull dragged the guy in.

They do not fight at this size ... with the above tackle ... go lighter and it'd be a different story !

Love your work TobyW !
