Goldband's in Dampier and Other Tasty Treats

Got out on Monday morning really early to do a freezer filling trip as the stocks of fish where running low. got 90 mins of fishing in before high tide at 9am and we bagged out. Best bit was the two pleasent suprises that graced the decks proving it was no fluke that being a couple of Gold Band Snapper! never heard of them being caught off Damps before so a new species ticked off the list and tasted bloody great too!

Love Gold bands and I have also caught a couple, and not very deep, ~30m. Was a tasty surprise.

You just have to post these up so I get jealous and want to come back to Kcity. Wish I was there both job and fishing wise. The SW suxs.
