Huge Cubera

Teamwork was vital to landing this huge fish. South Florida Mermaid's 2nd shot & helped getting this monster under control kept the sharks and goliath groupers at bay. Truly a fish of a lifetime.

Did you eat it? I ate a 40-45lber earlier this year and it was really quite good.. way better than I expected.

Re: Huge Cubera

Some quality fish there. Nice! Have you ever considered cutting down on the number of band and going with bigger band(s)? It cuts down on reload time and interference/entanglements.
Also, how do like the ride on that Parker? Given how far forward the cabin is, this has always intrigued me.

I am aware of that thanks Sea Archer, and how uncomfortable a fit the two aspects of spearfishing often are, partic on this forum.

I also understand that commercial spearing on scuba remains an established part of the commercial fishing effort in your part of the world - tho long since outlawed in this part of the world - particularly for species that are difficult or impossible to catch on line.

What leads me to post that reply however, is posting and claiming it as a trophy fish, fish of a lifetime et al. There is just no comparison in skill, experience, and personal risk to landing that fish breathhold. And with spearfishing increasingly pushing shit uphill to remain legit, avoid being legislated/hounded out of existence as terrestrial hunting has, well, trophy hunting on scuba just does not help the cause.

Give the fish a fighting chance, and get some great fitness in the bargain - leave the tanks in the boat

Maybe there is a better way to say the above without telling another person to "F yourself". How do you know "People like you ruin(ed) this forum? Are you a mind reader? Maybe people like yourself calling people "douchebag" and telling them to "Go F yourself" might play into why people have left more??

I don't have the answers but, they way you personally attacked Kavachi might be another reason.

I'm wondering if the OP came on spearboard just to show off his catch? He only has 4 posts and all of them are from this fish....

How do I know people like him ruined this forum? Because I know/dive with people who used to be very active here.. and one of the things that drove them away was foreign freedivers coming into their threads and shitting on them. They do it in scuba YouTube videos too (proof: https://m.youtube.com/watch?t=181s&v=4kzQqbTbFLc) just check the comments sections. They simply can't resist degrading any achievement that wasn't done freediving.. and I personally have no patience for it, as I've dealt with it for a decade. You can't reason/rationalize with them.. so instead of trying, I simply tell them to 'go F themselves.'

The OP shouldn't be made to feel bad for showing off his catch.. which was taken legally. He did nothing wrong.
