It is for competition fishing for bill fish. Prize money is in excess of $2m. First boat to the hot spot stands a better chance and this may be 50 miles offshore.

They seem to do fishing a bit differently over there. The guys at Save Phace seemed quite surprised when I told then that I didnt think there would be much call for their masks in tackle shops!

They'd more likely be used for mugging than boating if you sold them in tackle shops here
