A great weather window and a great report had A mate and colleague travel north in the middle of the night to try his hand at game fishing about the mighty Frewza "shes gonna sell me 2" 

A quick stop off for a feed first thing brought us a nice snapper on the jig before the sharks ate everything else we hooked - a real shame and loss of our fishery due to over population of sharks has been a hard pill to swallow.  We decided to move and set the lures.

Dredge, teaser, short corner, short rigger, long corner all popping nicely then BAM we were on with a healthy stripy putting on a show more likened to a blue, tail walking all over the ocean -  The fish over 180 degrees ahead of the line angle at times.  A dogged stubborn fish was subdued and brought aboard that went 99kg and enable Tom to feed his  wife and many many children, good looking man that he is!

I will note a fantastic hook up and as usual the Bonze lures doing the goods.
