How do you cook them? 

A very under rated fish, I once bought one from my local monger at $6.45kg, pretty cheap for a good fish!

That's the strategy!

Pity about the rod. I love the feel and weight of graphite but I am way too clumsy to make them last.

Cheers

G'day Rick. Late reply to your report. Terrible feeling breaking a rod especially when the fish are eager to feed. Hope you have better luck with the new gear and still manage to haul some Luderick in. Cheers mate, bn
