Great fish, Rick! Here’s one of me from 1990. My last “real” fishing trip, 2 weeks before my wedding! ? Gotta love Lord Howe Island.

I haven’t seen one like it since, either. I need to go back to LHI!

I love looking at the old photos - have gradually been getting mine together to go up on a Flickr site of fishing photos. Here's one of my dad with a jewie - would be close to 55 years ago at Norah Head when the camping ground used to be up above the rockpool.

Here's a couple of mine from the early 80's.

The 28kg marlin was caught when fishos were just discovering these things could be landed from the stones and the 8.5kg mack tuna was an ANSA landbased record at the time taken on 4kg line.

Nice fish off the stones, Green Hornet... those were the days!

Which ANSA club were you with and do you still fish under ANSA? I’m with St George Sportfishing Club - our 50th anniversary this year. There’s no ANSA club here in Port Stephens unfortunately.

Rick, those big tailor are beasts - I wish they were a lot more common nowadays, they'd be a handful on most tackle you'd be using to come across them.
