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

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.
