Is that a small blonde though

I don't think so, it didn't have the sporadic white spots that a blonde has.

Ok, thought that the spots stopped short of the wing ends on a spottie, but go to the ends on a blonde

Either way, lovely markings and a great days fishing

By any standard, that is a stonking Bass. I wonder if you will be like me and have a long, long wait for a double. I have caught loads up to 9lb 14oz, but the double eludes me.

I agree that is a juvenile spotted ray, blond markings are more random and less pronounced.

In his defence, I can understand where @Andy135 is coming from, with authority comes responsibility, and often that responsibility cannot be shirked.

10.08am on Monday I get a msg from @Andy135. Wanna come SPJ'ing on Friday aboard Jersey Girl? 
Well hell yeah, of course I do. 
10.29am on Tuesday, I get dumped. Uninvited, call it what you will. 
So, having had my hopes and dreams dashed (I feel for you @JonC), I hatch a plan to go solo today. 

Bah! You know full well you weren't ditched, the whole trip was kiboshed by work. Not like I went out without you...

Bloody well will uninvite you next time 😠

The bass unfortunately was gut hooked, greedy fucker really ambushed the bait and took off like a train. He bled all over the deck and had to be dispatched. 
I don't usually keep fish, I do like to return alive, but this one just seemed destined for the Cobb bbq tomorrow evening.

Did you fillet that with a knife or did you use a chainsaw ? 😲
