  1. I don't think it, is as there are some blue marks near the gills, the photos don't really show the colours properly but it is clearly visible when we caught them, so the correct matched is the banded cucumberfish https://australianmuseum.net.au/learn/animals/fishes/banded-cucumberfish-paraulopus-balteatus/

    Browns Mountain Sunday - My first blue eye on jig

    Hi Chao I am also thinking of getting gear to slow jig browns, wondering how heavy is the jig you used and what rod were you using? Can you still use a slow pitch rod for eg Poseidon PSLJ at that depth or do you need to purchase a high pitch rod PHPJ? Thanks

    I thought this was from squid attacking them when they were young.

    Harbour rocks blackfish report

    Nice catch! Something my local tackle shop owner told me is that filleting your fish while at the rocks can be risky, cause if a fishing inspector comes there is no way to measure your catch which could result in a fine.

    Think its a parrotfish? (Crimson Banded Wrasse. Male)

    Nice eating fish imo, but a bit of a pain to remove the gills.

    Great night at the wharf

    This iso setup is also called free float fishing and yes the cost of the float is expensive. one other advantage of this setup is that you have no stopper knot, which means you dont have to worry about setting the bait to the right depth. It cant be used in all conditions but is very effective in the right conditions as I have been out fished by my friend this way when i used a traditional iso float setup with a stopper knot.

    Haven't bought a yak yet, still working on selling the old van and buying a second Haven't bought a kayak yet. still looking into sell the old van and buying a second hand car! Sounds like the NKL is the way to go for any high vehicle! Will make that decision once I'm closer to really buying one, which is still months away unfortunately.
