    Second entry into the champs! And Greg (HEAD, The fiery ginga) is in the lead! (NOTE, might aswell make this a South Island wide comp as another suggested otherwise it’s prob just gonna be a competition between Greg and me. LOL).

    Caught at the Kaiapoi river on 15th September 2007. Pics as follows.

    Length = 37cm (it looks like 36cm however he’s not holding it right at the front of the fishes mouth)

    Weighing in at = 600grams / 1.32 pounds. (fish lost some blood, weighed a little more initially)

    Now the mullet are getting bigger! I’ve never seen one this big before. Still looking forward to the mythical above 1kg mullet!

    Cheers

    800g mullet viewed from above, with a 1.5L coke bottle. No doubt someone will get a bigger one soon.

    No sales jobs going right now, just one tech job.

    I got back from fishing at about 3am and had my first job at 8am, wasn’t functioning too well by the time mid afternoon came.

    I got heaps of mullet in Timaru yesterday, but most of them were pretty small. I will post pictures of the two biggest ones, but I have no idea how much they weighed since I don’t have a scale.

    Here they are next to a milk bottle lid and a smaller mullet.

    Well, it looks like Bogger is in the lead with a friggen big mullet! Haven’t ever seen one that big before. Good stuff. What were you using for bait?

    I await the 1kg mullet!

    Cheers
