Wow, you guys are really lucky with the size that Blues get to over there. We get exactly the same species here which we call an elf (in the Cape) and a shad(in Natal) and the average size probably runs around 3 lbs. I think the South African record is around 11lbs.

Whatever, they are fantastic fun on a fly rod. Best place to get them here is in estuaries on a pushing tide and we use 5/6wt rods.
