Description:

Healthy female specimen that I tagged.
Was re caught a year later almost to the day at the same stretch of surf.
Photo of her at recap showed her to be much thinner with evidence of considerable bite marks from mating activity.
Always encouraging to get recaps of large fish.
Correct handling minimises possible mortality.
