It was an old low budget film with mainly him fishing on his boat. He caught the big 22foot world record on it too

I recall as a kid going to see a giant great white slowly decomposing in a refrigerator truck that Vic drove around. Those really were the days.

I paid to see this travelling freak show as well (Frankston Sunday Market...mid 80's?)...Australia, bring back travelling freak shows!

There is an amazing film of Bob and Dolly Dyer shark fishing off Cape Moreton back in the days when they caught a lot of world record Tigers and Whites. I tried to find a link but the only one I could find does not work. They were fishing with whale blood, blubber and liver and the number of huge sharks they had behind the boat was incredible - 500 lb Tigers were the small ones. This was in the days of the Tangalooma whaling station still being in operation. Some of the current GFAA fishing rules came about from the way Bob and Dolly fished but what they did was legal in those days.
