Nice Fish

Nice fish Grego. Did your mate say it tasted any good? I've only ever kept 1 small one and it wasn't too bad, never really bothered with the big ones so I'm interested to hear peoples opinions.

Just as a side note: If you plan to catch and release Sambo's in future, take care with handling them as holding them like that puts a lot of pressure on their internals and they don't release anywhere near as well as the cradle hold, or so I am told.
