Yesterday I went out with some friends to a new place - quite a few fish around like this. Might be going back today !

Weighed in at 9 pounds and the smaller one at 4 pounds.

I caught the big one first and a short while later the smaller one. Pretty strong currents where we were so always keeping an eye on the tide state.

Nice fosh...

And what big hands you have...:D ;)

Wish we got that species here in Oz, I still remember catching one when I still lived in Germany.

edit: Fosh: Its like a fish only bigger...
Whoa! Dude, that's some serious seabass. Howdjer cook'em?
Almostafish - the large one was hit from above - I was drifting over an area full of weed, no movement from me, saw it below - thought of an empty lung drop for the shot but lined up ok from the surface and the bass wasn't moving off much so chanced it - shot through the side coming out in the lower area - just behind the gill plate. Other one was shot drifting too - the fast currents help, it was moving into the weed from off the sand.

Cheers Shane - yes, the Pelagos is like another limb now but might have to put it in dry docks soon as I will soon be driving a desk for most of the day again :( - good for the wallet though, but essentially a poor trade off ..... time for money
How are the Tuna ? Any sightings yet ? Been playing with your barrels ?!
