I speared a 3200gm one at Woolleys Reef just after Jordan shot his. Aaron C shot one at Mt Martha and I think Paul D has banged two. They are possibly the best eating fish in the universe.

Post subject:  Re: State Record captures

yeah thats about all the GB i have heard of being speared in Victoria. Only other one that i've heard of is from one of Barry Andrewartha's old books, 6.5lbs (around 3kg) speared near Lorne in 1965. Surely over the past 50 years there has been more than that taken?? Anyone else??
