HI. Everyone!!!! Today was such a beautiful day there was no clouds in the sky the sun was out it was lovely and warm so seeing it was such a nice day this afternoon Mum and I went fishing with a friend. We went to the river to see if we could catch some fish anyways. The tied was coming in and then after a few minutes a fish was on my line and boy did it pull and it took me half of an hour to pull it in it kept trying to pull the line out to get away but i wasn't going to let it get away... And oh boy when i pulled the fish in it was a huge Dew Fish we measured it and it was 60 Center Meter's long I have never caught a fish this big before my arms were so tied from pulling it in and now my arm is sore... This was the only one we got as the other ones we caught were to little and we had to put them back in the water they were little brim that we had to put back to small but this one i wasn't putting back in the water... We are having some of it for lunch tomorrow and our friend is joining us..Think that we will have chips with it to... Whew ill really sleep tonight I think i need a massage after this big catch.. The photo is not a good photo of me as it was dark...

My first Dew Fish 60 Center Meter's long.... What a catch.

Wow that is a beauty Lyn. They are good fighters. We used to catch them down in the Hawkesbury River but usually only what they call Soapies, smaller ones of the one you caught. Still a good size for one person to eat and legal size but about half the size of yours. The biggest that I heard of that was caught in the Hawkesbury was a 70 kg one. I can imagine your arms would be sore after landing that one.

This fish was heavy just holding it to get the photo taken.... And yes it was a fighter to it nearly pulled my arm off it kept trying to pull the line out when I was reeling it in the more I bought it in the more it was trying to pull out.... I thought I got snagged cause it felt like it wasn't moving to start with... I'm in bed typing on my iPad as my arms are so sore... We will be going fishing again in a few weeks time. Last week I caught a dart fish at Elliott Heads Beach....Thank you for commenting and yes the fish was legal that I caught today.... I didn't know we could catch these in the river.... Oh the river is salt water of course......

Goodness, Lyn, looks like you did a lot of hard work reeling that big boy in!
No wonder you need a massage, it's huge. :eek:

It's pretty, too--but I think it'll be even better cooked in butter and herbs and served smokin' hot with chips! How are you going to cook it? Tell me how it tastes!! :D

Love to see the outcome of successful days out fishing, thank you for sharing ;)

LOL don't worry Lyn, sushi is not entirely raw. Only the fillet parts of the fish is sanitized, seasoned, and served. I bet even Indi would love to be a sushi chef and make some fish and rice rolls for you.;)

Ha Ha!!! You would have to quarantine the fish if I send it to you....
Haha, Lyn, looks like you know the U.S.A pretty well already! :laughing:
After we got back from Germany, they searched all our bags with scanners, by hand, and with an adorable police dog to make sure we had no uncooked foods or agricultural products from the other country!
Homeland security took like 3 hours! :eek:
I guess after it had been quarantined for a "minimum of 40 days" or whatever it is, the fish wouldn't be good anymore! Ah, well, you'll have to eat some for me :giggle:
