Aussie, Aussie, Aussie....this interview is terrible. Turbo and Nikki gang up on me and talk Strayan non-stop....nah jokes. This is a very good interview with a super knowledgeable and a really good communicator. Nikki Watt is the womans spearfishing world record and Australian record holder for Black Marlin and in this interview she shares the story of their epic one hour batttle. Nikki's observational skills come through loud and clear in this chat and I learned several things about hunting dogtooth tuna and spearfishing equipment.
