Sure I've done it a few times now, not the 30, but the 20! Not actually weighed though.

I work with someone who has done both. He wants to go to Norfolk Island to try and get a 40. That's dedication.

Hmmm 45 cm is not even a legal snapper where I am but I am sure it would take me a long time to get too upset about bigguns like that .
Although my guilty secret is that I don't actually eat fish.... :$
