Wow, what a stunning fish.

I can't wait to catch my first Tope, although I think I'd like it to be a bit smaller than 41lb affraid

Yes, in the summer they are in the harbour and we can loose 2 hook dropper rigs and big sinkers, or they just bite off one hook. In the winter they are on the open west coast, and apart from loosing gear they drag you around the rock getting tangled with other lines, to mostly lose them as they are too heavy to lift up. Some of the Pacific Islanders keep them, but then many of them eat anything from the sea, I have seen them catch a 1lb Kahawai, scale it and eat it off the bones.

The tope tend to be around 30lb, but there are bigger ones around. Offshore in the summer we get huge Makos, also blue and thresher sharks, and in the harbours bronze whaler sharks which give birth there. Every year there are reports of at least one great white shark the length of a boat seen on our local harbour. On some of the east coast swimming and surfing beaches 150lb bronze whalers can be caught from the beach using large smelly fish baits, this does not make the angler very popular with the beach users, but the sharks are only after fish. We do not have the problems that Australia has with shark attacks, I only know of one death here a few years ago, right off the end of the rocks I fish from!

I worked in a shipyard in Whyalla S Australia in the early 60's,we watched a great white flick in and out of the Wharf stanchions about 10ft below us,Awesome,We moved up a deck to make sure we weren't it's next meal lol!
I came face to face with a Wobbergong shark while I was snorkelling,nasty feeling lol!
Great white aren't totally cold blooded,there blood is 3% higher than normal sharks,that's why they can go in any temperature waters.It also make them quicker and faster thinking.
They made that film "Blue water white death" about 70 miles from where I lived,I didn't see the film until I got back to the UK.I almost lived in the water those days,even swam out to a public raft about 200yds out at 2am in the morning.Haha,I don't think I would have gone in the sea if I had known.

Thanks Simon, I did as you advised today and caught my first ever Tope.

Is was only a pup, it probably only weighed two or three pounds, but I was delighted.

I got it back in the water fairly quick, so I didn't get time to take a photo.
