    Default good to be back and new pb

    hi guys been away for some time ill and very happy to be back to good health i hope.

    On my first session out since being ill i had my new pb of 52lb 2oz , pb was 27lb, the session started with my wife ringing me to tell me i forgot my camera , and she said you better not get a biggie, with that all hell broke out with the first night having a 26lb common then a 24 common and at 3 in the morning the delk screamed into life and in the net was buttons at 52. 2oz, i had to wake the owner up to take the pics, i have been really lucky in health and now in fishing what a session, pic in the gallery

    it was a great feeling mate just to be outside and not in a bed let alone banking the lake biggie.
    i caught the fish called buttons using my old mans rods and reels as i sold mine to help pay the bills while i was not working, when she was in the net i tried lifting it and thought the net was snagged but it was just the sheer weight, it didnt sink in it was the biggie and i had to check the scales about five times, then woke the owner up at three in morning and help check the scales and do the pics.

    not at first , he said nik its three in the morning mate your takin the ****, then i told him it was buttons , he was straight out , i was the only one on the lake, and it does say on his rules that anything over the 35lb mark he wants a call, he was great and new how much this catch ment to me , i have been fishing this lake for 3 years and only had a hand full of 20lb , i know there not the best pics in the world as i wasnt holding the fish right , i was so worried about dropping her in front of the owner, plus im not back to full strength yet.

    Well Done Nik,

    Glad to hear you are back to good health, and enjoying yourself again.

    Stunning looking fish to end the Year on, mind you, it's going to be a F**ker trying to top that PB.

    Congratulations.
