North of Darwin late this dry season, traveling along the edge of a reef, this goldie smashed onto the lure. We thought it was a pelagic at first, because it was going off like a GT. Then he dragged up a beautiful Goldie on a barra classic. Generally Golden Snappers are caught through bottom bouncing, so this was a nice surprise. We trawled back over the mark but there were no more to be had. We did catch a fair few smaller goldies on other marks near by, but this ones was a beauty.
