SA - the land of the bigger fish. The fish on the east, measure the least, but if you head west, you'll be bringing in the best!!

In whyalla in SA they are in plague numbers at a certain time of the year, and are actually protected - thousands of them come in to the bay to spawn and apparently its an awesome place to dive during that time - cant remember when it is though!!

We get heaps of em here they are great to snorkel with really curious they will follow you around and even try to steal fish off your float after you have speared them.The candles also make awsome kingy bait

Thanks Glen
I would feel kinda bad killing one because they look so nice! Might try one though.Its sorta like spearing those big wrasse up North. The fish come up and interact with you and some idiots kill them! :blink:
