not me in pic - i wish. sorry ,don't know the name of the diver at the moment.

i am a keen spearfisherman, but even so it's rather sad to see the demise of such a magnificent fish.

Guys, please don't dwell on "catch and release", we all know how those threads end up! Besides it is very difficult to practice Catch and Release if you are a SpearO, doesn't work.

That is an awesome monster well done to the angler! Any idea of weight?

I've dived the shoal on a number of occasions and having a livey on - that size - is sure to get some Raggies excited.
Glad I wasn't in the water at the time.

Thats a beaut.
spearos "look and release" hundreds or thousands of fish before taking the 1. The nice side a bout sopearing is there is very little or zero bye catch. you catch what you target every time.

Actually it wasn't. It was shot by a Denham Howe on an atoll in Moz, dec 6 2007.

See http://www.freedive.net/ibsrc/fish_frms/f_giant_trevally.htm

for full details.

As for the first pic, that GT unfortunately does not qualify for a SA record as the diver in question was not a member of SAUFF at the time.

As with any sport, you have to be a registered and current member of the main body to be able to claim records.

Sad as this is a very good fish!

Ya I know its off topic but just so that people dont mistake it.

The Nobel Peace Prize is the Nobel Peace prize.

A Nobel Prize has 5 different categories.

You are now educated.

Any case, brilliant fish.
