Bunno bluefin

Bunno bluefin

Pulled the scales down to about 10.5kg's, we were about 20 miles out of bunbury yesterday and then the swell got ugly and boy did i shit meself, nearly had a wave come over the side and nearly flipped us it took about 2 hours to get back to the ramp it was scary tuff but thanx to me mate DR we got home safe.. Thanx Doc!!! the lure of the day by a long shot (it caught all four fish) was a Pink macky bait in the medium size, i had it in the water for no more than two min's and BANG!! Stoked

it was crazy, we got carried away in the excitement but certainly a lesson learned!
We were headed out to a dhuie spot and noticed how many mutton birds were around and chucked a few lures out.

Solid fish

Well done Nealez, they are very nuggety fish that size, would have taken a nice big first run I'm sure.

20 miles into rough seas, that's not something I want to contemplate. Congrats on the skipper getting you back safe and sound. we had two waves wash completely over the bow on Sunday, thank god for clears.
