    It somehow doubt if it was anything toothy, because I wasn't using any wire, and my trace would have surely been severed had it been. Also doubt if it was a flat fish as I was using floatation. My thinking is either huuuuuge kob or a large geelbek

    but then again, according to all the records I have read, geelbek usually go off the bite as soon as the sun hits the water, so by deduction, I would go with huge cob, and if that is the case, then I'm thinking something in the 20kg plus class. I'd love to hear from someone who has caught a really large kob, how much line did it take on it's initial run and what was the size of the fish?

    hi chris,with the tackle u are using u should be able to turn a big kob b4 he strips a 100m of line.goin on that and the lack of big kob caught off the reefs,i would guess it was a spotty.

    Hi Stephen, you could be right, but there is also some speculation on Sealine that it could have been a mother of a kob. The guy who goes by the handle of Trophy says his 26 kg kob took 50m of line before finding a place to bury itself and then also started shaking its head. If it was a spotty, it must have been a monster. I've caught them upto 20kg's before and although they are incredible fighters, there is absolutely no way any of those would have been capable of pulling anything more than 20 metres of line the way my drag was set. But whatever this was, it was huge, no doubt about that!

    quite a lot of speculation around it being a smoothy. Apparently pound for pound they are much stronger that steenbras

    hi chris,i read the thread on sealine.lots of oppinions.i would go with a spotty or smoothy.with that drag u were fishing,u should have turned an edible fish.next time block him and hold on tight.climb in the water,so if the line breaks you dont fall onto the rocks

    you are more than welcome. Only one problem, the spot where we are fishing has very limited standing space, only place for 3 guys and I'm going with a mate who has another mate, but if the other mate cant make it, you must join us!
