even if the bite is slow it is worth it to come home with a couple of monsters like that

Nice work

 The fish in the second pic looks more like a very fat hapuka to me rather than a bass.  Either way

You have certainly got them dialled in, well done.
Did you see them on a sounder before you dropped your line or just looked at the bottom and took a punt.

 Are these good eating fish? I assume so or you wouldn't bother but I've never had any of them.

Awesome fish...great

Wed, 2020-02-19 12:53

Awesome fish...great stuff!

Ha...If you have a pool...just leave your shirt at the bottom for a few days. I have a habit of jumping in the pool clothed after I've washed the boat etc, then I hang the shirt over the chair to dry for the next session.....found it at the bottom of the pool once. Like brand new clean as a whistle!! :)

I'm on my second Fishwrecked shirt...Bloody good quality and price.

Slimey but tasty

Wed, 2020-02-19 15:04

 The slime that comes off a Bass Groper after 24 hrs in the slurry is something that needs to be seen to believe. Absolutely first class on the plate followed by the Bar cod. Blue Eyes generally go to the relatives. Good looking fish there getting me itchy to head out deep, maybe end of the week.

 Yeah and he doesn't go hungry either. That man has caught so many Dhu's and he reckoned that Bass Grouper beat it hands down. That's saying something!!
