Nice fish AGAIN Salmo........

Just as an aside, i know you get your pinkies in nth metro waters, where as i target them in sth metro waters, i'm just interested to know if they are in roe(that is assuming you keep a few for a feed). The reason i ask, is one i kept recently(and regretted), was chock fulla roe(yeah i know, my bad, i'm not too proud either, before all you doomsayers start to sink the slipper into me). They sure look nice, healthy fish. woulda been great fun pullin them in outta 10m's

Angry pinkies

Tue, 2006-03-21 14:17

Deefa, cant say I have pulled any over the last month that had any signs of roe...And I havent heard back from Nic (fisheries) that any of the frames we have passed on have been ripe. Seems strange for lady pinks to be coming into season now....but I know the only catch data Fisheries has is from the one pro working metro waters...

If anyone does catch any pinkies for a feed, think about handing in the frames for the research crew.

Funny night last night.....burnt my thumb on a massive stingray (over 6ft across) which was called early as a dhuie....silly me...
didnt fight like a ray....actually towed us off anchor....have to remember not to use my thumb as a spool drag again...

Oh and the pinkies last night was on a bait...havent caught one in the dark on a rubber yet...

The pinkie i was referring

Salmo,

The pinkie i was referring too in roe was caught just after new year in hind sight. Your reply got me to thinking just how long ago it was, man, does time fly or what.......

Still, great local fish mate....

p.s. that was one i got local in my avatar, a jen-u-wine 9 kg's on the lie detector....(can't really claim all the kudos for that capture though, was caught by me on board a good mates vessel, who has spent a hell of a lot of time getting the area sussed)....
