13 kilo pinky and 23 kilo dhu

Hello crew,

Thought I would share a couple of pics from the past two weeks of fishing and spearfishing/freediving. First pic is my pb snapper of 13kilos and length of 1020. As the story goes spent a day the weekend before sounding for ground and came across a lump in the desert. Put try on the way point and moved on. Next week after work took the old boy out, along with another mate to the mark. Sounded around and solid fish popped up so down went the pick and started the burley. About 20mins in my old boy was on and just about got ripped over side he was using his brand new talica 8 on a saltiest hyper. Unfortunately didn't stay connected. 5 mins later I watched one of my talica set ups bend slightly then spring back up. Grabbed it de baited and thought you mongrel. Looked at my talica 12 set up and the rod was doing the same only the rod stayed bent. Straight up I called it for a ray as there was no movement and the rod was loaded up. After a few minutes I though greats it's sealed the hooks. Was I in for a shock when I lent into the fish. After a tussle I landed it and was so stoked to crack a meter.

Did you have to go far for the dhu down south?

 Bloody nice fish (the both of them)

i am guessing the dhu came from the back side of the island down there? 

Or near the rocky outcrop?
