Spearfishing Blue Bush Cape Vidal and the Elusive Cuta


We were Spearfishing up at Cape Vidal 2 weeks ago, and it was dead quiet, and it was that way for days. Traditionally early the pace only picks up in February. So when I heard the boys were off to Vidal, my thoughts were that they were going to scratch for fish.

I dont know about you but Spearfishing Vidal can be a serious hit or miss affair. Many of my best fish have come off Leven Point, but I have had just as many scratch dives there as well.

For those that don't know, Leven Point is a 24km boat ride from the launch site ...... and most often in not so nice seas. So when you hit a blank ...... its a hard pill to swallow.

Craig Harper made the long trip worth while with his 24kg Cuta shot off Blue Bush just south of Leven Point.
Way to go Craig ...... I suppose that it going to be the cuta to beat this year!!!

Nice one
