Caught this today off Tauranga. Can't say I've seen one like that before so wondering if it's common.

Well done Bill! I've never heard of one being caught on a line before. They're usually out in blue water and not often seen if you haven't got your head underwater. How did you catch this one?

How'd it taste Uncle, Be pretty hard to fillet i imagine. LOL
Why choose either diving or fishing when you can do both. Besides crayfish tail is very good bait!!
