Michael Malloch was gobsmacked when this estuary cod hit the surface near the boat. He had no idea of the size other than it was a “Big fish” when he was fighting it to the boat. It was released successfully with an extra-large release...
Very big golden trevally for Frank Rystenberg. It was not weighed as it was release but must have been 12-15kgs. Caught on bait from a lump in the Exmouth Gulf and gave him a lot of curry on heavy gear!...

Bruce Thomson had a great day out with friends this month. All got into a big fish, but this rankin cod was the best fish for the day and worthy of Bite of the Month.
Rebecca landed this 9kg cobia not far from the river mouth this month. She thought it was just another shark but decided to fight it to the boat, turning out to be this nice cobia.
Sue wins Bite of the Month for this 16.37kg mulloway caught during the local club competition this month. A pending ANSA National Game Fishing record for 6kg Line.
AJ had to take the rod from mate Trav who was too sick to reel this 11kg cobia in. Initially thinking it to be a shark and about to bust it off, it thankfully came to the surface to surprise AJ.
Dave Alan’s sailfish big bite last month ended up tangled on another line and both Dave and Sharkman brought it to the boat for a quick photo and release. It was landed using a rod with a Shimano Saragossa.

During the last LeisureCat Ultralight, Ben Malton was fishing with 4kg line trying for a snapper or cobia when he got this big bite. Fighting it for 30 minutes, it eventually came up to the boat. It was more than 1 metre in length so had to be returned. With a big...
Roger was over from Singapore hiring the 7.8m boat with a few mates. Exclusivly fishing with slow flutter metal jigs he landed dhuiefish, snapper, samsonfish and this big rankin cod. Nice fish Roger.
Catherine Rawcliffe and mate Pete got into some nice tuna this month. Just north of the Sand Patch was where it all happened for them. Nice fish!
Bite of the month goes to Shay Maynard. First serious trip out in a boat and landing a fish like this. Great effort for Shay who fought this yellow-fin tuna to the boat by himself. The following day he landed his first mackerel.
Kent Muir wins outright this month with a big estuary cod that took a jig dropped down at the three mile just out from the river mouth. Hooked up on a knife jig using his 2500 size Sustain with 10lb braid Kent had had a lot of trouble on his hands. He had to release...

Ricardo Raffa had his hands full when he hooked up to this very powerful fighting chinaman cod that went 9kgs. He landing it while fishing out from the Mackerel Islands off Onslow this month. Nice fish Ricardo!
