Call me what you like

You can call me what you like after that fish, don't think it will worry me too much. ;) To say I was stoked was an understatement!!! My best dhuie before this one was probably only 6kg and on heavy gear, so you could imagine the amp on deck after a 10 minute fight and this thing shows up. Happy happy happy days. :)

20lb

We put it on some old scales that Tapout had in his boat and it weighed 20 pound. So probably just under 10kg I think. It had some weight to it thats for sure. It is a bit close to the camera in this shot so doesn't do the size justice, but it shows off how beautiful a fish they really are IMO.

Camera

Wed, 2006-09-13 12:01

I put all the koudos down to the cameraman. He did a fantastic job, if only I could have taken some shots which really represented the size of the pinkies he was catching. I've never been so disappointed at not taking the video camera, now that would have been some footage worth watching!!! Here's hoping Friday will be just as good, I'm charging up the vid cam and the normal camera, just incase. :))

I like the other shot where I'm holding the baitcaster with it, but this one is a beauty as it shows of the colours of the fish, which is what its all about.

I've just been sent a brochure for a 2 hour photo lesson this thursday night so I might pop in and see if I can't pick up some pointers.
