Nice! Roughly whereabout was this? Hopefully False Bay where it will mean some coppers exist.

Not often we get to see pics of fish below the surface.

Nice pics !

I have serious doubts this would be False Bay,but it would be nice if it were and there were Red Stumps and Steenbras like this making a comeback to the Bay.

Those tail look to be of a decent size too ..................

Patrick: Definitely not False Bay, but was on the Overberg coastline, not going to say more than that...

Capespearo: Yip those 'tail were all 15kg plus...

Tkei: The copper I estimated to be somewhere around 20kg... the picture doesn't do it justice as there is nothing else to give it scale, but it was a brute, certainly the biggest I've seen.

aha, now comparing that to the next photo I realize the romans have the same pattern but failed to see that the pic I was refering to was not taken with a flash.

Not at all, he was curious and followed me around for most of the dive but was certainly not aggressive...

Ja, rather leave it for a commercial to catch.:fbash

I think it may have been on SCUBA and one is not allowed to spear with any artificial breathing apparatus, other than a snorkel.
