What a SBT!

Sat, 2010-08-21 12:12

Is that locally caught? I know the big ones come from Africa's direction and pretty much head east,well south of Cape Leeuwin, but I could also imagine a few strays veering left and coming through metro waters as well.

 

  I don't spend enough time in Freo to recognize the harbour or not!

Na, not a local fish, probably out of Portland in Victoria. I put it up and one other while commiserating about the local runts in another thread! Mark Richter sent them both too me awhile back.

Not SBT but some big fish being caught of the west coast of the South Island of NZ at the present time too.  This lasts for about 2 months.

he has a charter boat in Portland Vic if I remember correctly and features in the Portland/Richter DVD with a 100kg fish.
Apparently it is like a car parkout there in good weather but I reckon I could put up with that for a fish that size.
