Beautiful fish mate, I bet it nearly pulled you out of the boat. It is specimans like that that make you consider installing a game fishing chair in the boat.

Thanks for the accolades fellas, yeah Rug my mate reckoned the fight was somewhere between a rampaging dogtooth tuna and a wet sock, leaning towards the latter :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Its just so beautiful to see the big breeders go back...magnificent Matty...just magnificent.....

Incidently, not bragging or anything, but I enticed one of these big girls up to a spearhead once. Nearly had her too but one of them steenkin barramudi came up from below and gobbled the nilsey right from under her nose.......would have gone close to 50cm too i reckon....

But for the respect the other marine creatures must also pay to such a magnificent beastie, you'd think with colouring like that, he'd have been somethings lunch long ago!

No doubt another if evolutions finest creations.
