G'day all

C-19 lockdown relaxed, so I enjoyed a Sunday afternoon walk along the breakwall and came across this fisherman with an audience. The struggle went on for over 10 minutes, his rod bending and straining. Here's what I saw while he was "having fun"

a) gathering an audience ~ most forgetting 'social distancing'


b) getting somewhere - maybe close to the end


c) the last struggle - almost landing the catch - but ...


d) here is the catch - which he quickly released after cutting the line as close to the fish as possible

panny FZ-2500; 1/800s; 5x zoom

As always, feedback welcome

Great series Phil, I bet that was a surprise.
As I scrolled down I was half expecting a boot or something. :grin:

Reminds me of when I was a kid playing in the sea with a fishing net, I scooped up what I thought was a big rock and it ended up being a huge nearly foot wide horseshoe crab. I thought it was awesome, my mom went into panic mode...

That's an unexpected twist for an ending. Well played.

G'day fellas

It was probably a juvenile - about 1,2m / 4ft across
The line was cut down 'real close' to the mouth, and the expectation was that the hook will be ejected by the skin over the next week or so

Good job. Had the crowd on the edge of their seats.
