In the bag

In the bag

Weekends looping. Not just crays ;)

Unfortunately the cuttly doesnt look to great in the pic though. Much nicer underwater though.

Might have to try those foxfish once the 16th hits too. Not sure why they're on the list, theres squillions down there.

Yeah, i've heard they are

Yeah, i've heard they are quite good but havent tried one myself. I could almost hear one of my dive buddies salivating underwater when he saw them, hehe. Said it was his (or one of his) favourite fishes.

Theres heaps of them down there, so you could probably get a few with a gidgy or even a snare (or a proper gun), but of course, have to wait til the ban ends.

Silly thing is they are in

Silly thing is they are in the high risk category, yet as you say, there is tonnes of them down there.

I would say they are an upside down blackarse, spot on the top, and have very similar eating qualities.

They're in the high-risk

They're in the high-risk category because they're very slow growing.

the meat is really soft... even skinning them, you have to be really gentle as your fingers push through like butter. they're def not a shy fish. Always hanging around checking you out.
