Here are some photos from our recent trips. Is it the size
of the fish or the smile of the angler that tells the best story?
These are typical deep sea bream or blue morwong (Nemadactylus douglasii) and are one of our most commonly caught quality table fish.
Snapper (pagrus auratus) is considered a top catch by most anglers.
One of our regulars said his lifetime ambition was to catch a big snapper … now it is to catch a bigger one!
Some say a fillet of flathead (platycephalus fuscus) in batter with chips is as good as it gets!
The six-spined leatherjacket (Meuschenia freycineti)
is a very colourful fish and suberb to eat as well.
Here is an eastern blue groper (Achoerodus viridis).
This interesting fish changes sex as it ages.
The young are all reddish-brown females and
become bright blue males as they get bigger.
The fish above seems to be partway through a sex change.
A small mako shark – built for speed and power!
The mulloway (Argyrosomus japonicus) is a welcome catch
at any time. One of these on the end of the rod gets the
adrenalin pumping … and they are delicious to eat
We call him… “Mako Man”!
The red gurnard (chelidonichthys kumu) with its wonderful wing-like pectoral fins is an unusual looking fish.
