I caught this horse of a Sambo last November.



Didn't have any scales on board but the boys and I estimated it was around the 30kg+ mark.

Was the first time when fishing that I wanted to get this magnificent fish back down as quickly as possible out of respect for the 20 minute fight we just had. Was incredible.

Ranger, I bet your arms were burning after that one.

Unfortunately I sold my boat about 18 months ago, and havent been fishing since (apart from with the kids off the jetty at Fraser. I miss the zzzzzzzzzzzz so much. I used to fish Moreton Bay every week chasing snapper on light gear. (where the username comes from)
I cant get excited fishing for small fish from the shore, I need to hear that reel screaming.

Try 24hrs!

Yeah I'm easy when it comes to fishing. I try to use a light gear as possible when shore and river fishing - still get a good fight depending what you get on the end of it.

Bloody hell, they are great fish! I'll try not to think of them next time I pull a few small trout out of the upper Yarra.

Hadnt been fishing in two years since I sold my boat. Recently got back onto a fishing forum where I used to be a regular. Found a bloke willing to take me out, and I promised to teach him how to catch snapper on soft plastics, in Moreton Bay.

I caught my best ever snapper at 85cm, pulled out of 7 metres of water on 15lb line. I was pretty happy with that. Im taking a day off work tomorrow to go and inspect a boat, which all going to plan will be mine by Monday.
