Very close mate it is an estuary cod ,32lb, taken off an inshore reef just off the Sunshine Coast in Queensland ,Australia. It was a toss up as to what cured me of cancer,chemo or fishing. I believe it was fishing. I still fish as much as my health allows me to. All the best Ron.

The Island I grew-up on has one of the largest Barrier Reefs in the world only next to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. What beauty there is just under the Sea.

Take care my friend and keep fishing your way back to health.

Well I am nearly past year 13 . I was a bit concerned because the scopes for the last two years have been compromised because I haven't cleaned out well enough. I have just had my latest scope. It was a good one and came back clear and clean. I don't have to have another scope for three years,so looking good to 16yrs ca free,Cheers Ron.
