Young fella who works at local electricity authority caught it last weekend, I'm told.

I'm meeting some guys tonight who should know the details.

Caught in the river about 20 km upstream from mouth.

Rocks in the background are remains of the old training walls built in late 1800s. I put a post up a couple of years ago about them.

Bit more info.

Caught last Sat 28 Apr.

guys fishing live poddy mullet for barra in 4-5m of water in river.

Went 1.55m and estimated 40 kg. Bit of a struggle.

Had to wrestle it a bit to get it in boat as landing net wouldn't look at it.

Swam happily away on release and barotrauma not an issue.

Not tagged.

Ronje

Huge. I know the spot well. Have caught hundreds of cat-fish there over the years.
Never heard of a jew there though. It must have been lost or sick I'm thinking.
Impressive catch though.
