Had to vote for Brads

Wed, 2007-10-17 13:13

Had to vote for Brads bluebone because of two reasons.. firstly, I took the photo :)... and secondly, I've seen how difficult big bluebone are to extract from the reef so definately my pick. Fingermark is a close second, a great shot, but the degree of difficulty is nothing against the bluey.

Too true jay! But a finger mark of that size pull like hell! Both great fish and the colours of that bluey are awsome.

They pull alright but they

Wed, 2007-10-17 13:50

They pull alright but they aint no where near as dirty as bluebone and they're often found in deeper water. I've caught ones in Darwin similar to Madfishers and they don't even compare with blueys.

All good

Wed, 2007-10-17 14:05

All good fish, with great stories to go with them.

Bluey for me, with fingermark close second (straight horizon might have swung it).

Barra Fishing

Wed, 2007-10-17 14:47

G'day Spess, the south westerlies cooled it off a bit which stuffed things for a while. Just recently we've had warmer, calmer weather so they should be starting to fire again. I reckon our next trip early Nov could be a bumper.

You can notice the change in seasons now it's really starting to get humid and there is some afternoon build up occasionaly.

Yeah Spess the weather has been all over the place lately making it difficult but once it steadies the barra should come on the chew pretty well.

Bluebone

I had to vote for the bluebone. Knowing how hard it is to catch one and reading the story it was well deserving.
