with the number of excellent quality fish being taken on softbaits recently I thought it would be cool to start a thread that contains all the piccies and a little bit of info about each capture in a single thread rather than being lost in to the ether within reports.

take it away fellas:

PS...it doesn't need to necersarily be a BIG snapper, quality blue cod, john dory, 'puka, kings, tuna or whatever really!
