Great day out getting 2 over 75cm!
Shame about the big girl, she must have been well and truly spent:(
I landed a PB at 97 on a hard body years ago and managed to get the deeply hooked HB out with some delicate surgery before releasing her at the base of a private house slipway. She sat on the bottom for a while before the wind came up and I'm hoping she swam off.
I feel pretty good about the many 70+ lizards I've released over the years and hope we all keep reaping the rewards of upgraded PBs for years to come:)
