22 lb New Zealand snapper

A few months ago I went on a fishing trip with Jim summons here in New Zealand after catch yellowtail for a few days we went to matai bay to try get some big snapper on our last day of salt water fishing we were on the beach hitting the water as the sun came up, I paddled into my spot after a few minutes I could here Jim on the radio with a good size snapper couldn’t believe it he was going to beat me again so I put on a new bait tipped all my burley out into the water and after a few minutes my reel started to scream I new at this time it was a good fish and bigger than jims as I was pulling it up I could feel the big tail kick and take more line once on the kayak I new I was in the 20 lb club my fish was 22lb and Jims was 14lb.
