Hi guys, my father Ian McPherson spends most of his retired life in Karumba Qld, around 6 months escaping the wintry Melbourne weather. Here's a pic of his latest victim. He mentioned the the weather is great, however it's the worst fishing up north since he can ever remember, you have to work hard and really put in the hours to get any result. His words were, 'The fishing has been poor but today I finally broke the drought. Not a bad fish?'. It went 97cm at 12kgs. Anything over 100cm they go back in. Cheers & regards Dave.
