9.8kg Golden Snapper from Darwin harbour!

Rumour has it that some FFF members are spearos. It's time to come out of the closet.

9.8kg Golden Snapper from Darwin harbour!

Post by BarraBeast » Tue Jul 17, 2012 3:10 pm

as temping as it wass to go to the beer can regatta. we had a swim last Sunday in the channel(no current on those tides).

BIG snapper to 9.8kg's made it into the boat. even the small ones were big.

i know your gonna ask so......find the deepest section of the channel just wide of the sandbar, locate bombies or ridges on the sounder and drop a line there.

subzero water too.

I pray that one day God sends me a fish so big that, when talking of it...I have no reason to lie.

Saw another photo of the fish being held. Is a very good size fish! Heard it was the NT spear fishing record?

Didnt get a lenght of it did you? Would be interested to put a lenght to weight for the memory bank as i havent weighed one for years and only take length measurements now days.

Great fish - don't know that i'd want to actually get in the water to get it though.

Nice Goldie!
If there is water and it holds fish, then it is fun trying to fool them into eating what you offer!!

Especially when you can see them!
