 This fish was caught by my 60 odd year old dad using a very simple handline, burleid up over two days with the yellow rock crabs, sighted and hooked, then carried up some very steep sand using driftwood and a willing random helper!! Ate some last night which we all thought was alright, though best to be set a day or two, frozen heaps.
