 Who cares what the weight

Thu, 2012-06-14 10:55

 Who cares what the weight was :) awesome fish and love the spots along the lateral line. Turn it into two fish off the same spot and you might have yourself a pattern. Be sure to remember the details of your capture for future records i.e date, time, moon and tide, barometric pressure and bait. Don't throw the carcass away, bury the head for the jewels or even take the jaws out if you are confident doing so. Well done again.

I'd say 35lb = ~15kg would be the correct estimate?

 Hey everyone thanks for the

Thu, 2012-06-14 14:22

 Hey everyone thanks for the comments the fish weighed at 29kg after the end of the day after being gutted and sitting in a salty brime in the bath tub in the backyard then hanging up on a hook for atleast 2 hours before weighed and measured at 1.35metres this fish wasnt very long just a reallly fat stocky fish and was much bigger than you think in person. I was using a mulie with 4o gang hooks and a 5oz star sinker just leaving it out watching for the right bites to come along and what i thought was a tailor turned out to be a mulloway because it was spooling line out like crazy at first i didnt think much of it tho thought it was a bloody stingray. cheers

not bagging you out just a curious question

Thu, 2012-06-14 17:38

but why would you put it in a brine then hang it on a hook for two hours?? is there method behind your madness?

Thu, 2012-06-14 14:27

plus i caught a 10kg one up past two rocks a week later i know i was lucky and that fish was not even a fight compared to this thing my big one took me 40minutes to bring in the only reason i probs didnt break my rod was because there was a whole heap of swell coming through and i brought it in on that.

 the easier and quicker way

Thu, 2012-06-14 16:21

 the easier and quicker way to remove the jewels is to look and see where the housing for them is and just crack it open with a flat head screwdriver. no need to wait and put up with the stench of rotting fish, unless you want to piss off the neighbours.

also as mentioned, doesnt look 35kg by any means . 35lb maybe. either way it is stil a nice fish.

Great fish

Thu, 2012-06-14 17:06

Well done mate thats a great catch , mabe your scales have not been strecthed like that in a while and just need to be checked. (135cm = 26kg on competitive weight charts). It one of the better mulla's iv seen coming  out of Perth waters - top effort , Wish one of  that size would come chew on my bait.

Best of all u managed to catch it at 10am - i would of been back home already, never fish past 8am unless catching bait.

Nice fish whatever it weighed, though they do seem to look a lot bigger than they weigh.

Beautiful looking fish straight out of the ocean.
