CROWDY Bay Charters operator Roger Edwards was out fishing with his son, Simon, when he landed this super snapper recently.
The fish weighed about 7.5kgs out of the water. It was caught in 21 metres of water, three miles from Crowdy in the very late afternoon. The bait was fresh sergeant baker.
Roger will be donating the snapper to Marine Rescue Crowdy Harrington. The coastal patrol has a new boat it's commissioning shortly and he will donate the snapper so they can cook it up and enjoy it as part of their celebrations.
