The fish on the left in the second photo seems to have a modified tail.

Suspect it has carked it in

Suspect it has carked it in the icebox bent, so the shape of the red looks weird when its held up against its "flat" mate.
Correct??

 I think it got shortened on

 I think it got shortened on the trip up. Pretty unusual they hit the rankin and not the red though.

 Yellow tails and yakkas. not to sure of the scientific names but pretty common bait up here to catch on the channel markers and any bait balls you find on the way out

Pilbara glass

Man I miss those days. Just absolute cracker days out there when its glassed off.
What depth and apart from I think the half rankin (If I was the shark I would eat the red) any problems with the tax team.
Also is the banana allowed ON the boat?

Tue, 2016-12-06 11:42

 fishing 55-60m and havent had a problem with sharks that was the only bite off and i think we got a couple of little sharks that got to the bait first. bannanas have been on the boat plenty of times although my favorite boat snack comes in a red can.
