You are killing me. It took me a moment to reply; I needed to clean the drool off my keyboard.

Holy Telephone Pole Rods!!! Those are some thick rods!! How much weight are you chucking and how far?

The rods are custom carbon fibre 14' 6" with pistol grip butt.

I use a 6 ounce sinker with 4-6 ounces of pilchard as bait (fishing for Cob) - on a good windless day I can chuck it approx 90m.

90m is nice and far for 10-12 oz!!! Bet that feels like a good workout!!! With 7'6" rods, we are getting around 75-80 yds with poppers and stuff up to 4 or 5oz for big Bluefin Tuna. Doing that takes it's toll; I can't imagine a rod twice as long and more than twice the weight being launched!

Wow! Nice fish Rookie! What are those big ones in the top photo? Look a little like Tarpon but the heads are different.

Mark, you took the words out of my mouth, I was about to ask if those were Tarpon. We have a Tarpon Rodeo in Grand Isle, Louisiana every year... lots of big fish and accusations of cheating. :) Excellent fishing Rook, I'm jealous as can be.

The fish in the top photo is called "Kabeljou" in Afrikaans and in your lingo "Cob"

Can't seem to find the "edit" button......

The top pics fish weights are 14kg and 12kg.

The second picture is a 16kg West Coast "Steenbras"

Both species are sought after edible fish and easily reaches $50 per kg in better restaurants.
