Well, that didn’t take long did it… After seeing his sister enter the Hall of Fame last month, Mark Loper was quick to bounce back.
He caught this 13kg dhufish on Black Magic 100lb Tough Trace and Black Magic KL 8/0 Hooks off the coast of Jurien Bay, Western Australia. Fishing onboard Kristian Hardie charters in about 30m of water, Mark deployed his squid wrapped Black Magic rig. Soon after he hooked into this impressive dhufish which he says put up a massive fight, “pulling string all the way to the surface”.
Well done Mark. You and your sister have done the Loper family name proud!
