Congratulations on that cracking catch. And its so good to see the fish released, although I wouldn't have whined if you had of taken her. (we all deserve one now and again, especially if you practise catch and release.)

By the way, how do you tell if the fish is a male or female?

It used to m8 but it's been commercially over exploited for many years. Trawlers smashed up the place with their rockhopping gear and there a gill netter who has nets on all the good bass runs.

I was under the impression that all big bass are female. I don't know if that is for definite though.

i would like to thank IAN for putting up this thread .thanks mate
I was proud to mate. You made my season yesterday and i'm proud to call you a mate. A little bit of me wishes it was me that caught her mind :sneaky2:

What a catch...fish of a life time. A true sportsman returning a specimen like that. An angler who truly respects his sport and other anglers too. You should be proud of yourself.

Once again brilliant!!!

Cheers
