Thanks for looking mate ,i love checking out other peoples cod pics too, i've seen one of yours somewhere. thumbsupsmilie .
Theres some old wide body lures in there around 160/170mm ,150mm slims are the usual size for the bigger lures these days, some others are 110mm and theres some 100mm full bod lures in there,i have some 85mm somewhere but i don't think theres any pics up .

Just love the quality of all your photos.
Even the small effort to place the lure it just makes it better.
Wish I had better photos of some of my catches.
Alot taken by my father with my head cut off etc... or before digital cameras, printed out somewhere???
When catching the big ones I have always panic trying to get them back asap before a good snap is taken
Cheers Stephen

You have got to be happy with those pics mate thumbsupsmilie , it's more about being able to look back at the moment a reminder of the catch and remembering the frill at that time, we are always in a rush tryng to get them back in and plenty of shots don't work out as good as you like but at leased we have somthing to remember that moment by .That big yellow lure was one i was trying out with a different big ,worked ok but i was'nt happy with that bib .
Heres a pic of my pb ,i was'nt totally happy with the shot and from a pro camera a cheaper one would have done better ,the heat of the moment and the rush to lift the monster gave me and the camera guy seconds, the thing was just too heavey ,anyway we got some other great shots and some ripper in water shots as camera guy held the button on and got plenty ,but only 2 to show that fish's true size .

Stephen...... digital made a huge difference in taking some reasonable shots ,before that i did'nt bother taking too many shots unless i had someone with me because it took to long to get them printed it cost too much and alot turned out rubbish anyway so i gave up .heres an old scanned 1.26cm i caught on an early doofy ,lucky a camper on the bank had a camera .few scanned ones i had help with by nearby campers ,they have nothing on the digitals but i can still look back and remember where and what i caught them on thumbsupsmilie . .

Chicky, thumbsupsmilie

Wow. Looks like it was this side of the boarded.
