    Holidays end

    Nice feed of flatties there Bruce. I am in southern Qld at present, threw in a line here and there, for nothing of any legal size.

    Nice feed of blackfish, would go well after the squid entree.

    Old days

    That is a bummer about losing the lure. As I posted, I still have one Wonder Wobbler that has never seen the water. Yours for $1,000,000. Well, if that is too much, then I will settle for a collection of every vintage of Penfolds Grange. 😂

    Swansea, bait balls but no luck

    Should have dropped the reddie back as a livey. 😆

    Beach fishing

    I visited Lord Howe Island twice in my younger days, and found the the kingies I caught there tasted much better than the kingies caught in NSW.

    Beach fishing

    I spent a week in N.Z. as a teenager, was taken out on a fishing trip to one of the islands off the southern part of the North Island, and we pulled out a few smaller salmon (plus other fish). The salmon were very tasty when cooked up as patties.

    Northern Beaches Mixed Bag

    Now can see what appears to be the "6 spines" on the tail, not easy to see on this laptop.

    Northern Beaches Mixed Bag

    A nice feed there. The jacket is a "reef" species, bit hard to tell in the photo, but it may be a horseshoe jacket or similar. The meat on those "reef" species can be a bit tougher than the chinaman jackets or "estuary" species.

    Beach fishing

    When I caught the smaller ones in my younger days, around the 3 pound mark, I would remove the gut and gills and mum would fill the cavity with her cooked rice mixture of chopped bacon, a little bit of capsicum, corn kernels and a few other additives, wrap in foil and bake in the oven. Don't overcook so it does not dry out. The salmon always tasted pretty good. If you don't like the red blood stripe, just remove it before eating.

    Port Hacking flattie

    Not caught by me, but my son sent me a photo of one he caught from my mother's place today in Gunnamatta Bay. (I am in Toowoomba Qld at present) He said it was easily 70cm (and it looks it in the photo) caught on a soft plastic in less than 2 metres of water. Surprised him and his mate. The flattie was rather fat, and was released. Easily his biggest so he is happy. No water in Toowoomba for fishing.

    Better than no flatties at all. One of those years where the jackets have made a re-surgence. The cockroaches of the ocean.

    solo on the kings

    Nice fish. W.A. had a big supply of waxwings when I was over there last year - it was the first place I ever saw them a few years ago.
