Beautiful day on the water with Whales passing by almost continuously. A long trip across the bay but hell, I'm alive and living the dream.

I think that I have Snapper fishing sorted now but this poses a problem that leaves me feeling somewhat ill at ease. Catching these big fellows in 50m does not do much for catch and release as barotrauma absolutely whacked this fellow that blew large amounts of air on surfacing. A pin prick was not enough to revive it. Seeing that I luck large fish I am going to have to fish sparingly--probably jinxed myself now. On the other hand, I have only been Snappering 4 times so they have had it easy for many years.

Anyhow, I think the photo shows the weight--I tried to get the scale reading of 11.40 kilo as a picture. It was a rather fat male. A bit of close observation will show the plastic used. Quite a lot of sounder action including 2 separate but VERY large arches that I could not identify.

So this will be my one and only outing for July.

Hope you enjoy

Grant

Keep at it Grant - it takes time, patience. You'll figure it out one day, and catch a big one. Happy to come with you next time to show you the ropes.
