Few recent fish

 Few fish caught over recent weeks. 

snapper caught in 13m went 80cm. Epic fight on light gear fishing for skippy. Filleted and ate the wings and frame on the bbq. Fed 6 adults and 5 little kids. Nothing left to waste!

had a solo day out, was given the day off by the missus. Plan was to fish in close for snapper then head out when the wind dropped. Launched at 6:30, fisher within 3 mile, 3rd drop got at 50cm baldy, 2 drops later pulled in a 56 dhu! Well there go my plans for the day! Bagged in demersal a by 8am lol. Weather was too good to head in so went trolling.

drive to the area I thought might produced, put the lures out, within 2minuyes reel was screaming, pulled in a nice sbt. Was bleeding like hell, so kept this one, over the next hour caught and rwaleaswd about a dozen more, not quite as big , but great on light gear. Couldn't get away from them! Headed home to do some filleting! Huge school of dolphins playing around the boat was cool to see. Will try to figure out how to post videos.

took my brother out this weekend, doesn't go fishing much. First spot quiet, so moved a bit, for a double header of good sambos which released well. He was stoked, prob biggest fish he has ever caught, and had him huffing and puffing! Decided to  move as they were too much hard work lol!

fished next spot for 2 baldies 1 was 38cm. Bit smaller than I'm used too but was clearly stuffed. Can see where eliminating size limit comes into play here. Other was 46.

stopped right on a Bonny to let my bro drop and he got a 56cm dhu as soon as it hit the bottom. Then pulled up a cracker 52cm breaksea. Great day, time to head home! Breaksea for dinner in fish tacos!

hopefully can get out this weekend!

Great fish especially the snap on the light gear. Setting a good example for us all, bagging on on demersals and moving on to other species :)

I caught a 38 baldie the other day fed me and the misses, IMO the only part of the rule changes fisheries actually got right.

You certainly couldn't complain about that lot.

The  Bauldies certainly don't like coming up from the depth
