Iv been fishing and spear fishing western side ppb for 25 years and never seen one that big ,biggest about 60-70 cm will always get at least one a season and 90% of the time it is spear fishing . There is plenty in the 50 -60 range in close in summer dont know where they go in winter cos we fish the same grounds as we spear and never get one .

My best is a 61 from the Beach at Venus Bay. Looked a metre long when i brought it in too :)

x2 metre long seems crazy down here, no way yanky/any other species in the bay would reach that sorta size!

I agree, I am sure is somebody caught a 1m or plus in ppb there would be undeniable proof.

Rye Pier, 1st jan this year, about 3AM, couple of fellas down the end of the pier pulled in 106cm flatty, was an absolute beast. They kept it, im sure it was an epic meal!
