I tried to revive this Queen frantically for 10 mins without success.The Remora was the only survival that was returned to the water. Im not sure if this was the returnin Queen that i caught 2 mths ago at the same spot (look at 8th Oct 2010)as they do have the same body scars and pigmentation but sad this time round it didnt make it :( The battle was fought in a mornin pourin rain..
Yesterday went for a mornin session with a friend with hope of landin an elusive Queen on lure(the last caught 1 year ago) but instead we have a visitation from a school of pest Cudas instead that resulted in 4 landins and a fews burst off.The score was 2 all with us landin 2 each :) No biggies to shout about but good remedy from the stress of work All fishes were released but who would want to eat this fish that has Ciguatera fish toxin . Cheers
Today has been a good day for me not only landin my 1st wild Kim in my huntin ground of Queens and Cudas but also fulfillin what i promised my wife to land her a fish on her birthday today. As i have experienced long periods of dry spell so today's catch was kind of a relieve and joy. Started to lure at 7am coverin the lengths of the river bank and with the hours tickin by and arms achin i was expectin another disappointment as there were no sign of biggies chasin baitfishes despite plenty baitfishes swimmin in unison. At 10am sharp i was almost callin it quit when i decided to give another cast and out of nowhere about 10m from the sandbar, bam! something took my line and i thought its another pest Baracuda but no its a Kim with its acrobatic jumps and flips. But to be honest its no fighter compared to a Queen but i'm happy it was landed. As there wasn't anyone around i have to use the timer mode to capture the shots and it didn't really turn out well but good enough. The fish was then released to fight for another day. Cheers
