Steep point spanaird - best fish I have landed

 

day one at steep point and I landed this 1.41 m spanish mackerel using a vent right ally bait skirted lure.

 

tipped the scales at a fraction over 20 kgs and yielded 12 kgs of fillet.

 

very happy man tonight.

 Thanks guys.  The flies are gone.  few nozzles still around but the citronella candles manage those.  wind conditions looking pretty good for the rest of the week except tomorrow which may be a fish inside the passage day.

 It certainly did. I didn't have my gimble belt on when the strike came.  One of the crew got got his lure in and my belt on me in about the time it finally stopped.  I reckon 30 - 40 secs?

Well done mate. Looks like the times are a changing from the recent Monkey Mia effort. Good to get a filler early on in a trip. Only have to find another 8kgs apart from the meals.

That one looks bigger and meaner than my PB 24kg one off dampier. Perhaps my scales were out, or the fishing "tall tales" hit me.

As for a blue shirt, would match a blue and yellow hat much better than that purple thingy on your noggen
