Benno1- Mate the fight was about 10-15mins but felt like ages, Yes it was on a nuke chook very very happy to had landed it and thanx to the nitro jighead for hanging in there, Yer the ramp is great now and sames as the pontoon but on a very rapid run in tide the boat tens to get pushed straight into it wich isnt a great deal. Yer we had the boat already in and ventured out with out a hassle.

Yer i was worried u can hear me say " Are u good with that gaff" haha dn i was breathing hard towards the end as i was scared to loose it so close. I was using a brand new Pflueger President 6-10kg rod ( First fish on it) and a 4000 Diawa Tearra with 30lb dineama braid and 60lb leader. Was awsome fight.

i can only imagine mate...but my time is coming...soon...i hope :P...im not greedy woman really...all id like is a overly legal red and one of the larger mack truck model spanish mackies :P
just before your big mack is boated...theres a rod thats moved out of the way with a set of hussar wings on it...did anyone boat anything decent on it afterwards???

Good spotting, Thats our secrete for most big fish, All Reds were caught on Wings of some species, mainly hussar as they are dinamite bait. Yeah everybody gets there turn but mine happened to fal over that weekend. Was a awsome weekend and fishing.

Awesome fish and bloody well played, Congrats and thanks for showing. Ben

Great stuff guys a real team effort, good camera work, good rod work, good gaf shot and good work by the guys clearing the deck. That is what fishing is all about! We do a bit of video when we go out, great to watch when you come home, we will have to pull our finger out and get it put up, don't know if it is up to your high standard though.

09-10-2008, 09:38 PM
I am sitting here watching your videos great shots, I have never seen the water so flat as in your video, may be I go at the wrong time. No sea to rough no fish to tuff.
Enjoyed the clips. As I missed out this year. Expect to ready for 2009. Well done to team hookup & Darral.
I beleve it was a huge weekend and the weather was kind. Nice Job PM.

Nice vid PM, while the fish was awesome some of the images of you heading out were just a good. I bet you were all a little worried when you saw it was a spanish and you only had mono leader, but I guess it only adds to the fun. What sort of cat was it also? It look like great conditions for fishing.

PM, What an awesome video, thanks for sharing. Most times we head out, we don't even take a camera. You've got some great memories there to look back on in years to come.

Congrats on your new apprenticeship to mate.
