palmy fires up 1.4m spanish

Postby carnster » Tue Feb 21, 2012 10:42 am

Paddled out this morn in the dark and as soon was i hit spot x my reel screamed. The fish peeled off 200m and broke the surface just like the fish that i have lost recently. This time the hooks held and i gaffed him green as 10mins later. Stoked as, i paddled straight back in and even landed a school mack on the way in. The pics don't really show the true chunkiness of the fish but the brag mat shot shows its length. Ant and co may have a few stories i am sure.

I didn't think they made them that big! Don't you guys have work or something g to prepare for rather than go out and make the rest of us mere mortals jealous?

Nice one Chris!

Why does the surf have to be pumping when the fish are biting?

Awesome Carnster. Bigger than I thought hung around Palmy. Mate, in light of BigKev's loss and a biggun I lost this year, can I ask what leader knot you are using?

come the weekend. They may even be short a maths teacher tomorrow
Tight lines Cheers Dave

The Carnster strikes again. It was a great morning very few boats with Carnster, Dennis, Pete and myself the only yaks out there. Everyone managed fish with Spanish, spotties and cobes caught. The cobes were hitting the pilly rigs with none under 10kgs :shock: :shock: Certainly gave the new jigmaster a workout. Nice work boys.
