A COUPLE new to Boyne Island have had their first encounter with a might Boyne barra, and it was an epic struggle.
Submitting their tale via our Your Story section, the couple was out trying to catch dinner in the Boyne.
They were using small live mullet, but having no luck - but using a full king prawn turned the tide.
"Five minutes later I was fighting the fish of my life.
"It tried to jump and only got its head out of the water, and then we realised how big it really was.
"It took a good five minutes to land and I have bruises all over my stomach from bracing the rod.
