Spearfishing just doesn't seem the same here. A typical day's spearfishing in the Red Sea would include Grouper to about 200lbs - also Parrot fish to about 40lbs.

Best shot of all though was by a mate of my Dad's - he found out why you should NEVER have a loaded speargun in a boat. Managed to shoot himself right through the buttock and thigh. My father got him to the hospital but there was a slight problem - the bloke was the surgeon - the only one!!! He was very lucky - missed bone and went between the muscles - he was fine in a few weeks.

Any pictures of you with your 200lb grouper cus that's a nice fish. This isn't me but here's a 200lb tuna. Catching tuna is scary stuff as they don't like it!

200lbs was quite small - some of the monsters grew to 400lbs or more!!! Prob are some photos somewhere - will have to get around to buying a nice slide scanner.

I don't mind fishing but for some reason these days I wouldn't be able to bring myself to kill a really big fish - dunno why but killing something like a Marlin for sport seems far worse to me than a Bass.

We used to eat the Parrot fish - delicious. Not much of a fish eater really - only cod fishfingers - swordfish and parrot fish - don't get many around here though!!!

Just eaten the Bass baked in a fresh herb and lemon foil parcel with Swedish sliced butter roasted potatoes with steamed sprouting Brocolli and Asparagus. Superb!
