Capital Cracker

Check out this musselcracker Mark got recently:



Mark did not suspect it was a 20 kg fish, nor did I. It was long but had an average, standard type build. We guessed 17 or 18 kgs but it was 20.4kg.

This size fish are not common in the Eastern Cape - I guess that only on three occasions I have seen fish that would definately have made the 20 kg mark. Then again this fish did not look that big on the boat so perhaps they are more common than we know...
