|Ratman in his element!|
I have been slow to get back into the water back home after my travels, the first week was time with my family. Then last week the surf was so good and I had a fair bit admin work wise so it was easy to make excuses not to don the 5mm suit and go look for Snoek.
Ratman on the other hand has been sneaking in getting a few Snoek, and with the conditions looking so inviting yesterday Ratman convinced me to take a swim. We decided that we would visit a spot that occasionally holds a Couta during this time of the year leading up to the Sardine run. It was a long shot but we were doing the mid day social dive thing and weren't expecting much to be honest. .... we I wasn't at least, this was just a get wet session.
|Ratman's new PB 23kg Couta|
We weighed the fish at my place. It was a super fat and healthy fish, but I thought the fish was maybe around 20kg, but it tipped 23kg. You should have seen the grin on Ratmans face :-)
