101 Caring For Your Catch

Shorter episode this week covering everything from shooting your selected fish to putting it on the plate in front of your loved ones. Caring for our catch’s is absolutely essential for every spearo as spearfishing is recognised as one of the most sustainable and selective forms of fishing. Due to how selective we are with our fish, it made a lot of sense then for Turbo and I to do a 101 on the main points to consider between shooting the fish and putting it on the plate. Enjoy a bit of a rough interview as we were both at our mate Benny’s bucks the day before (here is a quick snap of the golf).
