Steep Point Sailfish

 

 

I caught this 41kg sailfish just off Steep Point in April of 2003, was the first time that I had ever encountered these fish. On this occasion I was in fairly deep dirty water when two of these fish appeared about five metres below me, I immediately dived onto the nearest one, pushing my luck, got as close as I dared before  releasing the shot, hit just above the spine behind the head, had him under control in about 30 mins.

 

I have no desire to shoot another, though in saying, wasn’t to bad eating either.
