Just got word from the IUSA that my 31lb Red Snapper was approved as the new World Record! Was a great day on the water and I'm stoked to add another one to the books!

I have not been to Mozambique much, only to Linga, north of Inhambane.

I have never had much luck with gamefish and do more bottom scratching.

Also, I cannot live with the cops in Moz, everyone wants a bribe.

If I ever go back, I will fly in to my destination.

Awesome fish, record and great photo there Tsutsuma. Well done!!
I'm not a spearo, but my brother is one and he dives Moz from time to time. He was stoked with a 7.5 kg red snapper that he got off the south eastern side of Inhaka (not sure how to spell this ?). He said he had to wait to take the shot on the sneaky fish, as a big potato bass was watching at first. Then he had to grab it and swim to the surface before the big potato bass saw what he had done!
