The much awaited start date for the Adreno Big 5 Spearfishing competition has come! On Friday February 1st the competiiton kicked off, just in time for some lucky spearos to start hunting down their targets over the weekend.
The first fish has now been weighed in for the Big 5 competition! Brisbane diver and holder of the Australian Record for Cobia, Jake Limov, braved the horrible visibility, and bull-shark haven, of Moreton Island just one week after some devastating floods tore through Queensland and New South Wales. While he was only in the water for a few minutes, his persistence paid off when he landed this 16.1kg Golden Trevally! A great first fish for the competition, earning him 460 points.
After a quick check of the World Record for Golden Trevally, we also found that Jake's catch would have beaten the current World Record of 15.4kg, held by Cameron Kirkconnell! Congrats on a great fish, Jake.
