Day of red-emption

 Our 7th and last day on the water in coral bay for this year went well with another couple of pbs. I managed a nice red at 9,75 KG just under the best for the trip. Sandy got a pb of spanglie and a first of a blue barred parrot fish that went 5 1/2 kg. 7 reds in total for the day with various other species to give  us the bag out.

Thu, 2019-05-23 06:47

 Can I ask though, and please don't jump on my head as I want to be enlightened. I count 16 fish, I was of the understanding that 15 was the boat limit up north if you have 3 people on board?

 No probs. My understanding while reading the regs the blue barred is in a diff category and not included in the cat 1. Hope we didnt read it incorrectly.

 That’s a nice bag of fish

Thu, 2019-05-23 22:09

 That’s a nice bag of fish there, although I’m surprised you picked up Spanglies in water that deep. I haven’t really caught them over about 65m. How do you find the Spanglies to eat ? I find the bigger ones to be really tough on the chew. I’ve actually stopped keeping them and either return them or use for bait if I’m low.

Be interested to hear how you prepare them to eat.
