Fished with Jebster this morning in the Coomera river region started just on daybreak armed with two breamin outfits 1500 reels spooled with 4lb fireline 8lb & 4 lb leader after a few casts landed my first bream 26cm to the fork what soon followed I thought I could only dream of .The next pontoon fish bailing up & smashing schools of bait fish I went to cast my gulp sandworm but remembered I had pink grub rigged up unweighted for the surface .
I quickly got a cast away and started to retrieve when this massive bow wave rose up behind it ,reel begin to scream doing about 12 knots down the river. luck went my way he stayed out in the open water towing me with Jeb paddling hard to keep up then stalemate for over a hour. I couldn't lift him off the bottom round & round the yak he went with the drag set right my rod felt like it was about to explode with my first sight of colour I thought he around the 4 kg mark.
With Jeb waiting to help with the landing, the fish slowly coming to the surface passing his yak looked at me and said your kidding it's a bus then passing me I got my first good look at him. Then with the adrenalin reaching a new high Jeb pulled off a great tail grab to land it. About 2 hours of intensifying rush that fishing junkies like me can only dream of a plastic surgeon couldn't get the smile off my face today he weighted in at 9.8 kg it will be on Gold Coast Nine News Paul Burts Fishing report Thurs night.Time for a beer Fishbrain

Goramighty!..... I think I just hyperventilated reading that...ifn I'd been there I reckon it would have been a bowel movement.....
The fishing Gods really did smile, and you can take the credit for success on light gear. Hall of fame, Hall of fame, and is there a competition on around here somewhere?
and Frying tonight! Bring your own papers!
Sorry :oops: just got a bit carried away there.

Cheers Andybear :lol: :lol:

Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish.
