Not sure either really fulla maybe an observation on the site
really. something negative gets posted and gets multiple replies
for days, and a fish report barely gets noticed maybe just web
site evolution or summert.

Hello Fellas.
My name is Paul and i only joined the forum yesterday,and i have now sussed putting on the pics {you asked for bigger ones, sorry not sorted out reducing them yet} Right here's the story i cought the Tope at Logan about two weeks ago now, we had 4 rods out the back of the boat set up for Tope and never got a bite, i had an uptider cast out for a bit of interest and was reeling in a small fish when the tope struck.... so the story is even better when i tell you that i was on 30lb braid with about 12 feet of 30lb nylon and a simple paternoster armed with 2 size 2 hooks! and that was what got the fish,she was hooked just outside the mouth and the hook was partly straightend out when my son and i lifted the fish into the boat.We guestimated at about 72lb as she was a real handfull to keep hold of but i am keen to see what you lads think.

Cheers for now.
Paul
