elcome to the current issue of the Sans Souci Dolphins Spearfishing Records.

In compiling these records I found that throughout the reference books I have used, many specie of fish might have several different names, I have endeavoured to use the most common name.

As Queenslanders in different areas do seem to have their own naming competition with certain families of fish, I have been naming the species speared outside NSW waters with the given name preferred by the outstanding book “Fishes of the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea” by Randall-Allen-Steene. When claiming a record be aware of the scientific name, as this does not differ and therefore is the most positive source of identification

About the ‘Pucko’

Dolphins’ club member and world-renowned spearfisherman, Ian Puckeridge, kindly donated a trophy for this pelagic species award.  It is a beautiful trophy, made from the finest Australian timbers, designed and handmade by excellent craftsman, spearfisherman Alec Howard.  The feature is a spearfisherman in underwater mode grappling a speared tuna.

With the advent of Blue Water Hunting this trophy is to acknowledge the outstanding pelagic captures made by club members of the Sans Souci Dolphins.

The criteria for the Pucko is simple.  Open for all Club members 365 days a year, anywhere in the world’s oceans or seas.  To nominate a fish it should be deemed a fair catch by a witness, and the fish much reach its designated weight on tested scales witnessed by one other person.  The application form is then filled in, a photo attached.

Once you have qualified, your name, the fish, date and location of the catch are engraved on the trophy.  All Club members that have qualified for the Pucko will also receive their own engraved trophy.  You will retain this trophy for it to be re used every time you capture another fish of ‘Pucko’ proportions.  You now have a trophy that will record every one of your notable captures.  

Good Hunting!

Simon Trippe.
