Spearfishing – Massive Bluespot Coral Trout!!

An awesome day out at Stevens Reef, with a bit of reef fishing and Spearfishing, off Mackay on the Great Barrier Reef! We pulled up on one of our favourite spots and one of the first fish caught was a nice 7.5 kg Bluespot Coral trout which was also 75cm in length. New fishing Regulations now mean all Bluespot coral trout over 80cm have to be released, so pays to remember this if you get a true monster, our best is 14 & 15 kilogram fish. Truly a fish of a lifetime. With Anthony onboard, an excellant Spearfisherman, the guys went in spearing. The haul of top quality coral trout continued as well as several more Bluespot coral trout up to 5kilos. Larni, got harassed by a big Hammerhead and cut his spear and trevally off and went over and saw Anthony for support, Hammerhead followed and saw Anthony’s nice Coral trout and taxed that as well. Exciting stuff, and glad I was in the boat, Hammerhead shark’s can get Feisty!! Enjoy the footage with some real nice trout taken spearfishing,
Cheers Greg
