    I got this one in the creek just outside the back fence, not sure what it is, one of you will know.

    Bits of it were definitely released back into the water.........honestly, would I lie to you?

    Top fish Jeff, what weight would it be roughly. Scratch another one off the list

    Yes Kev. Exactly right. It's a long overdue check on the defibrillator implant, which is the main issue.

    A new set of eyes can see things differently. I know it did for me.

    I'm not sure what it is Diesel, but suggest perhaps a southern blue fin trout. Rarely caught in creeks, preferring bigger water most times. I'm told they can be used as a substitute fish in sushi, but have not had a chance to try that. While trying to not offend; this one is perhaps a juvenile. However, still a formidable task to land it on the ultra-light tackle displayed. It would be lucky to be 20lb gear?

    Too true, but this visit will be more computer technician stuff than medical I think.

    Technology is moving that quick, your defibrillator could have been updated a couple of times since it was fitted. All the best for the 8th.

    Should have added 'that could be so'. The defib is in daily contact with head office (makers) so I wouldn't try to guess what might have happened during the time. It's probably geared for replacement later this year.

    Just under 18lb, Kev.

    12lb mono, Noel. There is a funny story to that fish. During the early 90's, the tuna farmers from Port Lincoln were towing a holding pen of fish from the Bight back to PL when some fairly wild weather forced them to seek calmer waters not far out off Murat Bay (Ceduna). Apparently there was a small breach in the net and quite a few fish did a runner. I didn't know anything about this until some days later when a fishing mate got in touch with me at work and screamed over the phone "SBT's in the bay, grab your gear".

    I caught up with my mate at the end of the shipping wharf where he was waiting in his little 3.5m tinny and off we went chasing Southern Bluefin, me with the only rod I could get my hands on quick and capable of landing any fish bigger than a King George Whiting. It was an old Ugly Stik with a fairly beat up Penn OH reel loaded with some crappy old 12lb mono (these were pre braid days - for me anyway). We spotted some birds working in the bay and I picked up the fish on our first run and what you see in the pic was it. A lot of fun to go head to head with on light tackle, they are one hell of a powerful adversary.

    Jeff :cool:

    There's few fish can go harder, though I think Yellow fin might toss them. I suggest they go harder and longer than GTs, sometimes so far down in the deep you wonder if they will ever come back up. And with the shelf so close at Bermagui it's deep beyond freshwater fisho's comprehension. It's not hundreds of feet, or even metres; it's fathoms, to a point where you think in kms deep. They also grow to giant size. A local got one off Bermagui last year that clocked 69kg. Took him three hours on high grade 30lb game gear. I've spent one and a half to two hours leaning into 30lb, with striped marlin, and it's damn hard work. Three hours would be like an eternity. But what a way to go; almost dead on your feet as the deckie finally takes the trace.

    Longing to do it again

    I know the weather's crap but if you should venture out don't forget the species comp, it's still running $20 cash to the winner.
