Adult yellowtail kingfish about 10kg
Speared with a multi-pronged head (pranger).
Anchored in deep water about twenty feet under the surface. No bait was required. The fish liked the safety aspect – to their detriment.
Rolleimarin underwater camera was top of the range product in 1960s. Aluminium “Tempest” was hard riding and strong – although rivets often popped loose. 40 horsepower outboard was mostly run full throttle. Boat manufacturer DeHavilland was amazed to the extent of repairs, under warranty, regularly required.
