First metro snapper

At first i thought it was a mission to get a metro snapper but with a little planning and google earthing made it much easier. and seeing my first land based snapper hit the sand instead of the rock walls id been hammering over the past few months made this seem too easy to see not one, not two, but 3 snapper hit the sand in one night in the metro area,
good too know that there are still gr8 fish in the metro area.

measured 92cm and 8.9kg on the digital scales

fishing with two other mates we all landed one snapper each and was home b4 midnight.
