Spearfishing a tropical yellowtail at RIY banks

I have just reloaded after taking a 4 kg soldier. Down below in the 18 m viz I see a shoal of tropical yellowtail crossing below...

great shot! the placement is perfect! how much did the fish weigh? Do they taste the same as normal yellow tail?

Hi Eckhart,
The fish was about 4 kg. I prefer yellowtail - tropicals have a flavour somwhat like the dark flesh on other fish - For this reason I cook on a smoky fire or actuially smoke them and have cold or in a salad or on samies.
