Started a drift and within 5 minutes two fish came to the chum and flasher and I made a dive to 10m and was able to get a great penetrating shot through the shoulder and out the bottom of the bigger of the two fish. The tip toggled and with 125' bungey and float fought him gingerly to 20 meters where I put a second pole spear tip on and made a dive to shoot him again in the head. Shot didn't kill him but wounded badly I made a dive and knifed him in the brain before pulling him to the surface. Fish was taken unassisted and with only a pole spear. Fight was approximately 45 minutes in 85 meters of water. Video of first and second shots as well as fight and coup de grace, and measurement available at this private link on YouTube : http://youtube/dhrH9Pvpuyg I appreciate your time in reviewing this record submission
