Hi Guys,

Finally after hooking and losing a few very large bull rays from the beach here in Western Australia we landed one.

The main problem on the beach we fish is the deep gutter only 10 feet beyond the sand. To pull a large ray up over the sand ledge is incredibly difficult but this evening luck was on our side as it seemed the ledge wasn't as marked as usual.

After nearly an hour fighting hard, James managed to get the ray into the surf zone and with the use of waves get it high enough up the beach to take a few shots before the release..as for the weight..well in excess of 100kg.

It was landed using a mullet head as bait and 50lb braid through to a 100lb mono leader and 150lb wire trace...



All the best, Scott

That's a beast - and unless it's a trick of the light, that's some barb that it has on it's tail.
Congratulations.

If you measured it, Davy Holt on WSF has some charts for skate that might give you a reasonable guide to the weight.

cheers guys,

unfortunately we didn't measure it Ken but have had it identified and have the conversion charts so will try and measure the next one to get an accurate weight..at a guess it would be around 150cm and put it close to 120kg but as one guy said, just a few inches make a big difference in weight..add 20cm and that could be another 50kg

all the best, Scott

Hi Guys, managed to get another Giant ray last night..this one took longer to land at around an hour and 45 minutes...picked up a fish head and avoided getting hooked..ten minutes later another bit which i assume was the same fish..

We had a good look at the barb on the tail..which is around a foot long! This is the commonest species to injure divers and swimmers which is not surprising!

the ray would have weighted around 110-120kg or about 250-60lb..possible a bit more..

hope you enjoy the pic,

All the best, Scott
