That fish was a bloody pig.

I could not get it to lay straight cause of its guts and that picture doesnt really do it justice.

Would have been 4 kg at a guess. Madness, fat bugger.

You have to wonder just how much all these 60cm + fish that are supposedly being caught weigh.  Congratulations Steve.

Yes, it's the longest recorded in the comp, and definitely the fattest.  I think there was a 56 caught in the River last year or the year before.  Someone claimed a 60 once, however the photo didn't reflect that size.  You don't see many Bass that could wear a saddle.

Those 58/59 river fish you see on yellow brag mats would certainly have been weighed Dale, no record claims though.
581mm river fish weighed only 3.05kg

From memory, Steve may have been equal bass record holder for the event  at 56cm. That horse will take some beating for sure.  :Clap)

Good on ya Sel. That's terrific to see you looking out for Steve like that. Congratulations Steve. It's good to see you get your due credit, especially after such a horse. Many thanks to Gary, Dale and all those hard workers that make this such a great event. Thanks to all the sponsors, and in particular to Craig Charlton, who very quickly offered to install the new humminbird sounder in Ana's Kayak. He has already installed that exact model in my own kayak a few months ago. Craig and Gary have both been a big help to us in the past, and their efforts are greatly appreciated.

I've got to say that Steve did not say a thing, nor did he complain at all. However credit given where credit is due, he caught the fish fair & square so should be recognized.

 

Fitzy to me this is an example of the differences between a genuine angler, and some others who like to see their name in magazines quoting tackle brand and equipment to gain kudos.

Compliments to both Sel and Steve on their actions.

Well said Dodge, I couldn't agree more.  :Clap)
