mackeral
« on: Mon 9 Apr 16:36 2018 »
Been awhile since I have caught one of these - hooked quite a few but pulled hooks and bite offs have gotten in the way. This was on a slow trolled live bait off the Gold Coast this morning. I thought I had hooked a 20+ kg model half and hour earlier - good head shakes and fast runs early in the fight but too stubborn for a mackerel and turned out to be a bull shark about 6 foot long
