Opening Deep Drop!

 Craving mad at sparrows on monday morning we punched our way to the shelf for the first day of the demersal season. Things looked promising on the sounder with the activity low and thick. Jigs were nabbed first then a big double header or 20kg gbs finished our bag. Problem was it was 9am. Trolled out the  rest of the morning for only a couple of striped tuna. Epic day!!!

Looks like you nailed it. The worst part is filleting the slippery buggers. Diamond eyes aye .... they are now available in 750g models :-)
