The fish is only part of the dream. I saw a short film, about twenty years ago, from a cliff, near the southern tip of the 'Land of the Long White Cloud'. There were whales, fish and birds, thrashing about, as far as the camera could see.
I dream of diving there, on the last day of summer and shooting a 161 kilo Southern Bluefin to go 'one up' on Terry Maas, just once.

Hi Ivan ; that would be a nice cobia to see ...:p
Apparently the place for them is Brazil . The reason I dont have them on my dream list is that once you see one ,have found them easy to approach .
Try Mozamique for your Jobbie :D

hi

Abri so Brazil is the place for cobia thats where teh wr was taken wasnt it. Mozambique sounds good already I think one day when I get a job and some money Im gonna go to South Africa and meet up with some of you guys and get some big Jobbies. Your diving sounds similar to ours except that you have Whites, tigers scare me enough. One problem though you guys dive to damn deep dor me I mean i cant spear at 30 to 40m stuff that id be samba rring every dive.

cheers

Size doesn't matter guys! :)

#1 Beluga (Huso Huso) - they weight up to 2 tons so any size is good. And they are already restricted (but not banned completely) by the Bern Convention, so my dream will have to wait... Even if I see one, I won't shoot.

#2 Bluefin tuna

#3 Shi drum (Umbrina cirrosa)

Not too much of a dream, eh? :)

Thanks Murat,

I've seen several belugas. It's a Black Sea fish. The last one was 800 kilos. Like a small submarine :)

A fellow spearo from the old generation was diving some 10 years ago and he stayed at ambush by two huge logs at some 15 meters of depth with very low viz. After 20 seconds one of the logs surprisingly moved. The smaller one followed. The guy nearly drowned! Belugas. It appeared his ambush spot was by the tail of the big one. He didn't shoot.
Back in the 70s during one of the Silver Amphora Cup there was a Czech competitor who entered the water and during his 2nd dive a beluga passed by without paying any attention to him. He boarded the boat and refused to go back in the water. :D
A friend of mine shot a very young one this year and he suffered a fair amount of kicks on the arse for this act...

I've never seen any beluga underwater though. :(

I saw a Russian Sturgeon (Acipenser gueldenstaedtii) once, which is not some Russian version of Scott Turgeon but a fish of the Beluga family. :) It was a juvenile fish and I didn't shoot.

I would have to say:

1. Bluefin Tuna
2. Yellowfin Tuna
3. Wahoo

Honorable Mention: Cobia

Spearing either of the first two would probably be the death of me...but we can all dream!

Not really . Have only had two encounters in over a decade on the north - east coast . More likely to encounter them further south .
