Exploring some rocky reefs with sandy patches, I spotted a pretty large flatfish. I dove down with my Neritic Polespear and aimed right around its gill. When it exploded out of the sand, I was amazed at its size. It was almost unreal how big it was. Normally, European Plaice fish are at most 1-2 kg, but this one was a behemoth. My Husband and I weighed it an hour later at the dock and it went 5.6 kg. Stoked on a super tasty catch with a polespear!
