Mate caught this one in NPD he assures me it went 62cm but as you can see he made the mistake of taking photo half in the shade and the brag mat shrunk. :(.
Cheers
Ray. PS he said I can have the 100 bucks order. :OMG

Nice try Ray, but no cigar.  Remind him that if the brag mat had shrunk the fish would show bigger than it is, not smaller, and I haven't heard of a brag mat stretching too far.  That is a nice fish, well over 50 and one to be proud of.  I have to wonder what would make someone lie to his mates to tell them it was 62cm.  You know 99% of fishermen give the rest of us a bad name.

Maybe a few more years.  My brother got a 53cm in Moogerah that took 12 years to go from 32cm to 53cm.  That is a good fish too Pete.

Yeah imagine they would be very slow growing once they get to a reasonable size. She was a bycatch, night fishing for jew, took a 5 inch hollowbelly, a mate got one the same size the night b4 on a 5 inch gulp. Bless her cotton socks, i will thanks her each Bass I catch next season.

54cm was caught recently at NPD along with over 30 smaller ones on the day, no lies told this was meant as a joke. NPD has been excellent one day and ratshit the next. Got 22yellas one day, 48 bass another, its good to see there are still some left in the dam.

Don't worry about the fork length Kyle.  It means absolutely nothing in Queensland.  If you're gunna measure it, measure all of it!
