Saturday Night Bat Fight – XVI
The story all began back in 2007 when some friendly ribbing was being thrown around on a local fishing forum. The two fishermen were Donfish and Latimeria who were deciding which county had bigger bat rays and even if the surf or the bay held the biggest bats!
We both had been bat ray fishing for a long time and were confident in our techniques to catch these beasts. We were planning (or at least I thought it was going to be mano y mano) to find out which angler had what it takes… This quickly escalated into what County had the biggest rays as other fishermen joined the fray and a tournament was born. Who would have ever guessed it is still going all of these years later.
This humble showdown is anything but humble…. It’s all been about bragging rights and deservedly so since the bats are big, strong and will test your tackle (& will) at times.
