Feels like summer and with fish like this around, why not i say. Took 400m of line in an all time screaming run and was pretty bloody exciting. Thanks for the company lads and dazza for you specialist filleting skills. 30kg+ and 165m+.

Good fish when you need two brag mats. I like it a lot.

Whenever I open one of these reports, I know what I'm gonna see...

I'm starting to think that you have a couple of stuffed/fibreglass wahoos/macs that you
wheel out every week, just to make us Southerners jealous...

Mike.
Is does look picture perfect, almost fake if you will.... ;-)

But it is Carnster and I expect nothing less.... Respect

The "Carnster" earlier in the week talks up the idea of going to Palmy on Sunday to chase mackerel and Whoo, I say mate its winter the water is getting colder I reckon its a bloody long shot, needle in a hay stack stuff buddy. No he says he feels " Confident". :lol: :lol: So off we go, we separate for a while we meet back at the reef, King Carnster has a monster whoo in the bag on the yak and I've been catching doggy mackerel :shock: :shock: words fail me, I suppose you can teach an old dog new tricks. Its never dull fishing with the King. :D :D

Cheers

One thing for certain,Southerners are jealous.
You can say that again.
Not just jealous though - also impressed.

Does this mean that 2nd and 3rd in the HOF are now relegated?
I'm not sure if entry is automatic or has to be applied for.

Not applied for Labrat, but not automatic either unfortunately. I need to know about them so I can go and manually update. Fear not though, this one tickled the old spidey-senses and will jump in there to sort out next week when I get a little QT at work. There's a HoF sticky in the Main forum where people post and I pick up the majority of them.
Thanks guys i really appreciate it, but in this case i don't want to boot neither Stu's nor Clives stonker hoo's off the list, they don't come easy and i am happy just to catch and eat another one. I understand that Clive's was 160cm to the fork which is bigger than this one by 1cm and stu's looks just as big so i reckon they should stay.

Ok finally got out of the doghouse by catching up on my jobs after coming home at midday. Took a young newbie out this morn with the Ant and the Rodpac. Paddled out no probe, oops forgot my sunnies, so back in i go and finally catch up to the boys at outer palmy after releasing 8 tailor on the way out. Low on pillies and it was only 6:30am. Paddled around 8 km out and watched Rod taming the squire and Ant loosing a big Red. Paddled even further where i had been hit last trip. The water looked blue and i was confident as i remarked to Ant about the chance of a hoo. Dolphins put on an ariel show yak side for around 300m until i politely asked them to stop harassing me so that i could catch a fish. Picked up the pace to catch up to the newbie and saw a couple of taps on pillie. Textbook wahoo, then absolute ball tearer of a run as i watched my spool empty in a great rate of knots while i was being towed around. In my peripheral i could see the beast jumping pin the distance a long way awaybut my line was in a different direction since the fish had been swimming in a big arc. . With 30lb braid i didn't want to apply the brakes, but was in danger of being spooled, so i adjusted the drag on the jig master and slowed him down enough to keep some line on the spool. Finally sunk the gaff after a good fight and the newbie seems quite impressed. So i rigged him up a pillie and said paddle in, you never know. He dropped one on the way in so i rigged him up again. He scored a tailor and a doggie and i reckon good trip all round. I am a bit sore but stoked as.
