    Know exactly what you mean Brian - my 'best' fish was a rocket-powered 92cm beastie that took a long time to land and included 6 or 7 aerial displays and backing around some timber to 'unknit' it! Just would not give up!

    The 114 went OK though........

    BTW I knew the pic of your fat butt ugly 118 would appear on this post!

    No offence........

    no offence taken mate

    Arent those 90+ fish just scrappers though mate, big enough to be more than a handfull, straighten hooks or splits, rub off leaders, but still at a size/weight where they dont knock up so quick.
    Meteries are gold, but for sheer entertainment a 90 going ballistic is hard to beat IMHO.

    cheers

    You're spot on Brian.

    Now that I have a metery and a decent PB I'd much prefer a session with two or three 90+ fish that will challenge my abilities, try and knit me up in the timber and give me one or two aerials (without throwing the hooks!).

    Having said that I'm now seeing reports of 'slimmer' bigger girls that are putting up great fights..........

    I think your 118 and my 114 pulled hard but were simply too fat and tired relatively quickly.

    Nice fish boys, Brian that big girl has been eating all the donuts left up there. None, zero, zilch, nada pics for me to post but only 22 sleeps to go and hopefully I will change that. Cheers, Pete.

    My New PB 115cm caught at Mondy on 17th Sept 2008. She was heavier than Roo's PB 117cm. You have it bang on Pete, the 90's don't give an inch, not to mention the aerial displays!! Can't wait to get back there!!
    Cheers Kim.

    This is one of three 90, 111 and this girl at 119.5cm, that we caught at Monduran on Easter Sunday this year, up the top end. Over 600 in the park. But nice and quite up where we were.

    Only two and half weeks till the next trip.

    Apologise for the photo, but was a little buggered and so was the fish at this stage. 17mins to the boat side and then the netter caught the lure in the lip of the net. A bit of panic and a set of grips and comfort lift. Measure quick photo and back over the side.

    All caught within a hour period, but after the first two left the area to quieten for awhile and got the big girl on the first cast back into the timbers, in about 1.5 to 2m of water.

    We waited around for time and checked to see ok, even returned the next day, after dropping of a couple of followers, to check the area again. But they had gone quite with a little wind change.

    Regards

    Trev
    Fish for the future, enjoy the present but think of your children.
