7.4 and 9.6kg

First trip we got onto them we weighed them at bluewater. Filleted them up and tried some for dinner, yuk!, like eating bits of rubber no matter what we tried.

Now we release all of the larger fish (over 4kg). Good fun on eggbeaters in 25 metres of water but. The thing is they usually travel in small schools, so once you get the first the next couple usually follow pretty closely behind.
