    Re: What is the "Flukiest" fish u have ever caught????

    myself, my wife and another couple decided to go to tangalooma wrecks one sunday morning to lie around and read the paper and have a bite to eat.

    when we picked up the others, my mate had a spin rod with a small slug attatched to jig the beacons on the off chance of a mackeral.

    first drop, hook up to something that didnt want to stop, after about thirty minutes, a lot of chasing and a near miss with a container ship, up came a nice cobia of 16 kg.

    funny thing was the cobe had not taken the slug, the treble got caught on a busted swivel that was attatched to about 2 metres of 80pd leader that was securely hooked in to its mouth.

    lots of disbelief when we got it close and realised what had happened.

    thank you to the unlucky punter who had lost it the night before, dinner was lovely that night.

    hi i thought i might add to my other onne that i posted, recently at stradrbroke island i was fishing the surf with plastics and there was not much going on so i put some s-factor on and accidently getting a bit on my line first cast a hit and the wave crashes so i go i am oon i drag it in to be a 50cm+ longtom where he had bitten the line where the scent was and in the wave it wrapped the lure around its snout becoming trapped.

    I've done this at least 4 times that i can remember. Always in slack water around oyster leases in port stephens. Line runs around the ventral fins, through the mouth and then the hook catches back on the main line. hey presto lassoed fish. Always bream and everyone a keeper. The only time it has been slightly different, i lassoed a squire and then a bream took the hook so i got both. Couldn't work out for the life of me what i had on.

    I was bream fishing with my father in-law at Reddy Bay about 10 yrs ago and was wading flicking my baitcaster around with a #1 92247 loaded up with chook gut and a zero bally down on the hook........ I got slammed about 5 mtrs away from where I was standing. I was hit in probably 3 foot of water max. Anyway the fish ran a wild arc through the water and then the line went slack.... it was heading straight for me.. I wound like buggery and finally gathered as it went straight between my wader clad legs it sped off pulling line against the drag whilst my rod was between my legs and basically my head was as well.... it finally bricked itself on a mangrove behind me.... either the tree was upside down or I was still looking through my legs. ..... it ended up being a nice 35cm jack that had wound itself up so tight on this tree that it was basically immobile..... I released it and just shook my head...... what a rush

    20knt winds, raining and in a sagging inflatable canoe. I wanted to go home but my bro said one more cast, betting a jackall on catching a fish. he was using a 3.5cm popper in real choppy water, and got smashed halfway in by a 50cm golden trevally on 2kg line. Ipaid for the bet.

    i was jigging a soft plastic in some fairly shallow water, with lots of rocks, when it got snagged about 2 meters away from me. i spent 10 mins trying to jiggle the lure out, i saw a 35cm bream yank the lure, unsnagging it and let me have him for dinner that night
