Inky squid is right - it was at Glentana. Sorry for the confusion - previously heard Boggoms but it has been confirmed that it was in fact at Glentana

I know he catches a lot of those monsters, reason I asked was to know it was recent and that those big fish are still around.....:)

And that I'm jealous as I spent a lot of time fishing that beach and did not have much success....

The last big cows I heard of, being taken in the jbay area, were all released so they are still swimming around waiting for you grootvis ;) They are just not there now as the water is not lekker, more like sterile at the mo'. Need to be in Glentana!

Congrats to the angler above..that's a big cob!

Not sure how long but I heard that the fish was "dead" tired when it came out
Would really like to hear more from someone closer to the source

They did try to release it, but after a while it just floated around, so they took it.
