Sydney Sunday.

Recommended Posts

Morning all, another great morning to be out but my god still cant feel my fingers. Wind has finally dropped after blowing all morning easy 10knots from the west.

 Not a great deal of current or swell, half a metre from the south and a bit of wind chop across the top, as i type everything is dropping.

 Fish are here but very slow on the bite and water temp has been steady all morning at 19.3 and greeny blue.  Have managed to pull a feed of snapper, mowies, flatties, pig fish, trevally and 2 small samsons. Big Snapper went 61. Just fishing in the 50s had to move around a bit due to toads.

Thanks boys wasnt tooo bad, just kept the two sambos. Might have to start catch and release for a while as cases of Carlton Draught are looking scary.

Wizza, nah dont clean as i go. Just drop em in a slurry. Generally clean everything at sea, dont like doing it at the ramp, too many eyes and questions.

Probably more eyes and questions here aren't there?

Plus the cleaning tables at boatramps are covered in bacterior n germs.

same here drop whole into a slurry of ice n seawater,

only thing I do is bleed ones that need it.

like Taylor n tuna etc.

plus the flesh firms up nice n makes cleaning easier, or fillet catch and save all frames n guts etc for next trip burley.

waste nothing.

Good stuff mate, quite a nice haul once you got going.

Big snapper must have given you quite a pull.

Well done.
