I got the boat out for the first time in a long time, the neighbor and I managed to put some fillets in the freezer.
I thought this one was photo worthy.

1554212266_screenshot_2019-04-03-00-28-36-1.jpgGeez I envy you guys in Qld. Here in Victoria all we catch are barely sized flathead. My mate and I went out a few days ago and caught 33 flathead (almost the bag limit for 2 people) and after filleting I was able to half fill a 2 litre container of milk.
When I did go to Cairns 2 years ago, I caught about 10 fish and they were all whoppers !!! I had to freeze them solid wrapped in newspaper and glad wrap so that I could sneek them on the plane back to vic. I'll see if I can find a pic of one of them.... Damn file too big Ill have to trim it down a bit.
There finally got it uploaded... what sort is it?

pretty sure that's a golden trevally mate, can become a real nuisance when chasing spano's or bottom bashing. They are a very fun fish on poppers in the shallows. Queenslanders are spoilt in the fishing department, we even get your prized snapper up here in the cooler months.

edit: its really a bludger trevally

Thanks for the info guys.... The only really good tasting fish are, coral trout, small trevally, spanish mackeral and OUR snapper. That thing I ate was not really that good, but the fight they put up was phenomenal. I really didn't mind pulling in just the heads thanks to the sharks you have up there. And yes, that's Yorkies knob and the bloke who took us out charged $200 for the short trip.Bit of a shark himself. I'll see if I can find more pics.

Hi sand surfer these were some of the others I caught, is that a coral trout or something else? It didn't taste that good either, so I'm thinking it wasn't.
The fish on the bottom was the worst out of the lot to eat. Sure wish I had my smoker back then. awful
The skipper called it the "mother inlaw fish" A bit fell of my fork and it actually bounced it was that rubbery

Redfin season is back, tried out soft platics for the first time, I shite you not, first cast.

I honestly thought I was dragging through the weeds close to the bank,, turns out the cheeky bugger must have only been about 4 feet from the point I was standing on.

First one Ive had in 3 seasons, always something getting in the way to throw a rod in. Tasted like poop which was unusual, really muddy for the first time ever.

Cleaned up the rest of the shallows with these trio of bad news on the worms.

Still any fish is better than none.

Cheers.

I used to down to the Yallourn Power Station storage dam and catch HUGE carp-great fun-they were chopped up and buried in the veggie garden mainly for growing cabbage and cauliflower. Great fertilizer. smile
