Thanks guys, yeh was pretty stoked when he popped the surface and wasn't a sambo :) No point keeping him at that size knowing I'd surely get a dhu a little later to keep for fillets. Just fed 8 people fresh dhuie tonight, many happy bellys.

thats one hooter of a snapper with that big honker. a fish of that size would have gone well and well done on the release, looks like it was a pearler of a trip

Nice work getting a big snap

Nice work getting a big snap on the jig. I quite like them as a jig species, as they put up a better and more interesting fight than a dhuie IMO. Also release better and taste better Laughing
