Keep at it mate and when you finally achieve what your chasing you will appreciate it more then what you know now :nicefish!:

I've lost that many big fish lately that I've lost count. But ... after losing something hefty to a snag after a 5 minute battle under the wharf decking, I finally landed something last night - a very silver 87cm / 6.5kg mulloway. It was lip hooked with a 4/0 circle, and carefully released to fight another day.

Committed or crazy, deathray. That's it on the photo front for the moment - I'll try to get some better shots of the next one I land (hopefully with my brother to hold the camera next time).

Nice fish Bilby! You've obviously got the Jewie bug....and it isn't an easy one to shrug off. It can be a frustrating game, but keep plugging away mate. You never know, that next one could be that 25kg+ monster you've always dreamt about. They are certainly there! Hope to read about it soon mate. Good luck.
