Yeah spot on 20kgs on a dodgy set of scales, I reckon it may have been even heavier. I caught it on a live tailor. Yeah we hooked a few rays (Four or five between two of us) and also a huge shovelnose shark to.

And to the young hoons, drunks driving past a bit earlier yelling, " Get a life you losers" (They were yelling this cause it was New Years) I wish you could see the results. Mannn hooning down the road hanging out the window is not living, This is living.  Haha.

Kasey L, If you look closely

Mon, 2011-01-03 16:41

Kasey L, If you look closely behind me you can see a long pole gaff with a gaff at one end and a net at the other. We used the net but it was sticking out a bit and we had to be careful. My future son in-law Mitch did the honours of landing it for me, I just loosened the drag on the reel once it was sort of in the net and gave him a hand to haul it up. Once the Mulla was up the hooks came out real easily, we could've lost it just by bumping it the wrong way.

Yeah I realised I'd like to eat it, so no it wasn't released. :) It was too knackered anyway. I've already had two meals of it and it tasted quite nice. :)

Hard yards = Top fish

Thu, 2011-01-06 21:35

You are a dead set legend Danny, yet another top fish from the shore. I am absolutely certain you have just inspired another generation of mulloway chasers. Not ethe time taken, 3-30am, that means dedication.

 

Congrats on a fantastic start to the new year. Hope you get a few more memorable captures in 2011.

Yeah LBG24kg  it was right in close when it first hooked up, pretty much straight down. No need to throw too far. Luckily it headed out on its first run otherwise I'd have been in trouble. I let it go a fair way before I tried to turn it.
