I've posted pics of a few elsewhere. Thought the fish merited it's own thread.

Here's my latest. I'm sure someone can top it. This one is only 25 lbs.

Aaaaah, PLAMONG, much loved eating fish in Thailand! reputed by local fishermen to be an absolute MULE to haul up out of the deep....took me 20 minutes just to bring up a 4 kilo Trevally and I was convinced it was going to be at least 8 kilos.....God knows what an 11 kilo trevally would feel like!!!......Hey, who knows, maybe I will catch one this afternoon havent had so much as a single bite in weeks...thats portentous it means the monster is just lurking out there waiting for me increasing in size each day I return empty handed!

Here's how to filet 'em.

http://ulua-fishing.com/how_to/fillet.html

I posted this one elsewhere awhile back. It's not a black ulua which has a more depressed brow.

But this is cranes lugubris See second pic.

Philip is right about being a mule. They just go down and swallow a bag of cement. Tough to get up.

Janey Mac Dan.....now that's a fish. How in the name of God did you haul that guy into the yak?. Would it not eat you or the yak? Can you eat that one? Wow...that's a lot of eating.

I'm gonna have to re examine my whole approach to this fishing ....set my sights a little higher.

Wonderful.....well done!

The AI is good at trolling lures besides bait. This guy hit in deep water over a drop off of 300-500 ftahoms. Suprised he wasn't over the shallow portion.

The double hooks make an easier C&R than triples.
