Big bank steenbras

Check out this noce bankie that Darryl Hiscock got recently:



It was a nice big one - 8 kg - a rare sized fish in our waters - normally they are more like 4 or 5 kg. He got one some time back of 10.3 kg - thats 300 g over the SA record!
Darryl asked me where the big one normally show up - I have taken two over 8 kg in Algoa Bay, one at Seaview and another at Eerste River on the Tsitsikama coast. I think there are more big ones in the bay but they are still rare.

Pity they do not get as big as the white steenbras!
