Surely there must be some keen Patrol owner fishemen (fisherpersons) out there, maybe we could get some good photo's and info etc for future trips. For example, next year I'm dragging my camper with tinnie up to the Cape on a Barra, Queenie and GT mission.
Here is a starting point. Sunny Coast Cobia.

Cobia off the front of Mackay Harbour a while back. Not quite sure where I hooked him up, as only check the troll line every hour or so.

Nice Sambo Ferret, Got a mate who chases them over your way off Rotty, he raves about them, got to do that one day. But in WA I did pick up a 23kg Jewfish off 80 mile beach just below Broome a few years back, still looking for the photo.

23 kilos eh, that'd be worth about $1700 on todays market, my best jewie was only 17.5.

I was actually fishing for Threadfin at the time, don't know who got the bigger surprise, me or the Jewie. She did manage to destroy my old traveling egg beater by the time I had landed her.

Some great fishy pics guys!!
First pic is my biggest barra(lake monduran), next is a bass from our local dam(Clarrie Hall), then a toga from Lake Borumbah north of the sunnycoast. I love fishing the sweetwater, we have some awesome native species. We also fish the salt when we're after a feed. I'd love to target tuna and GT's a bit more.
Cheers Kim.

Wow Themissus,
Thats a great barra, Got to be 1 metre plus, makes my best 800mm barra look a bit sick.
Found earlier mentioned photo of WA 80 mile Beach Jew.
P.S. disregard Jeep in the background!!

Cheers guy's she went 115cm and was too heavy for me to lift. The impoundment barra are way thicker/heaver than the wild fish. The Bosses biggest is 121cm...but I can't seem to lay my hands on a photo:rolleyes::D A friend landed a 126cm a few weeks ago. We're back up there in a few weeks I can't wait.
Cheers Kim.

Some nice fish there!

Here is a couple of mulloway in my 100L esky. I had to trim the big one and fold it up to get it to fit.
Somewhere on the south coast of WA. 25lb line. A lot of fun!
