I used to listen to this as a kid, thought it was the saddest song in the world  :'(  Cos I thought it was a true story. The last line of the song is the one that matters  ;D
I remembered all the words.  It is a true story!  You're never gonna see no Unicorn.

Its funny.... you see these threads come and go and just never seem to see the pic of the monster.  Maybe thats fishing for ya  8)

Casting no ill will to the authors of these threads of course.  I don't know how many times I've got great fish only to forget to take the pic to prove or find I have forgotten the camera.  Then you tell your mates and they are, oh ok.... you got one that big hey .....   ;D

Dale that monster you say DEEDI turned up would have been 50yrs old wouldn't it ?

Cheers

hahahahaha.  They all grow a bit with their throat cut!!  Obviously it's over 50, but if he wanted it to be over 60 he should have put his foot on it's tail and stretched it out a bit too.

Not really, nobody really knows how long it takes a bass to reach it's maximum size.  I was 6'2" when I was 16 years old.  I'm still 6'2" tall.  Did it take me 16 years or 53 years to reach 6'2" tall?  I say it's the same with fish, unless you can name one other creature that continues growing until it dies.

That's a nice bass to be sure, but I wouldn't be calling that a true 60cm bass compared to how the majority are measured ie. intact & on the measuring tape. I recon apples with apples is probably a nice 55er.

A damn nice fish for sure, but no cigar on the 60cm barrier IMHO.

Thanks for posting. :youbeauty

Cheers,

Indeterminate growth refers to the condition where animals grow rapidly when young, and continue to grow after reaching adulthood although at a slower pace.  It is common in reptiles, most fish, and many mollusks.

You blokes have got to be kidding, of course the big ones are out there, still to be caught.

They are big because they are smart and will always be the hardest to hook up.

Always go prepared for the big one each time you go out.

I never fish light, my leaders are always ready to handle a monster. Twice the size of the last one I have pulled in.

Wouldn't you feel good if he snapped off at the side of the boat or as soon as he touched the rocks.

Dale,

Carpet Pythons , they get to 6ft in 3-4 years on good tucker in the wild. Then they keep growing but at a slower rate until something kills them , eg. people , cars  , dogs , shotguns etc........ . Very rare for them to be found over 3 metres anymore.

Cheers,
Dave.

I would call it for about 54 / 55

Tail is stroked, its short of the start and its throat is cut. That is a rat.

Now Dale when did you start loosing your hair, recon you may have been 6'4" as a young fella with a mullet'

Yeah, me too. Couple of weeks ago I fished a little lake in the Uk with 4lb mono with 2lb hook length, size 16 barbless hook. Handled the 18 1/2 LB carp easily. ;D
If I had killed it I would have been lynched.
 And I have it on good authority that when Dale did have hair it was styled pretty much like Gary Glitters. ;) so six foot six is possible.
Cheers John.
