Just a quick little report on how the Aldermans went.
I recomend it to all who can get out there, totally mind blowing and helped me fall in love with the sport all over again, the blue water, copious amounts of fish species and a day of Personal Bests for this little boy.
I shot two kingies but one ripped free after battling him for 5 mins and the lads recond he was +- 18-20kg but the one that did come home was 15kg, also took a little Pink MaoMao home and got my deepest depth with 20 seconds on the bottom at 17 meters.. Ready to go back now ;)

15kg Kingie.jpg
This was the 2nd Kingie of the day, taken at 8 mtrs, the first was about 20kg taken at 16 mtrs
Pink MaoMao.jpg
Lovely little pinkie taken at 14 mtrs

Everyone is a genius.

But if you judge a fish
on its ability to climb a tree.
it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.
