Found time for a quick dive on sunday morning. Took the boat out to a favourite South Coast spot, and despite the easterly and reports of plankton, found clear water on one of my favourite spots. After a few dives to locate the structure,I was lying next to a sandpatch downtide in 17m, when I saw 3 large shapes come over the top of the reef on the limit of visibility. They moved slowly towards me, and the nearest one presented a perfect shot. Didn't quite stone it, but nearly. I could see the spear was not fully through on the other side, and when I grabbed the fish to push it through, realised that it was bigger, and farther away than I though.
14.2lb, my biggest pollack yet, home made fish and chips for tea, perfect
