Apart from a very slippery road on the way back home it was very nice trip with good weather.

Oh my word!... stunning photos of some beauties! Looks like everything came together for you! You got a full house, can't be much more that you would have really wanted out of a trip like that! or was there...?
Well done!

Thanks guys.

Was a very nice trip although a bit quiet on the edible side.Still waiting for my 100kg plus blacktip.

Used a nikon d3200 with the standard kit lens. Very nice entry level dslr that i feel comfortable taking fishing. Actually had to replace my old one the week before the trip when as the crowbar gang struck.

The Zambezi fishweights calculated at just over 160KG wich is just over my previous PB.

The grey i didnt measure (forgot the tape) but would estimate at around 120kg maybe.

Caught 8 smaller sharks which i didnt bother measuring from around 50-90kg.

Thanks for the info, really awesome pics. Amazing the awesome results when you use a decent camera! We usualy just hack it with a standard phone camera but the difference is actually quite vast!

Epic catches too, particularly the Zambi! Bucket list specie for me! What bait did you get it on?

Thanks Craig.

Yes its just a pity we have to travel so far to target them.

They dont run as fast as a bronzie but make up for it with their stamina.

Got it on a sandie.

Last one I caught was on a octupus so dont think they to fussy.
