first NT Black Jewies ( mulloway)
just a few pics to make you all green with envy,
had an awsome weekend, Just a few shots from my fishing trip on Sunday.
Run out is LONG down the South Alligator river from the ramp, 100km on the river ( most was in the dark in the morning!!!) to ensure we got a high tide to go out on. Then 23km from the river mouth across to the banks off the East Alligator River.
BUT the fishing was worth every cent and hour of the trip.
My tally for the day:
8 x Black Jew Fish ( Mulloway in WA, or Kob in RSA). Biggest was 112cm, average was 108~105, none under a meter! I kept my bag limit and sent the others back to fight another day.
1 x Golden Finger-Mark Snapper, 78cm long and just over 28lbs on the scales.
2 x Grunter Snapper ( nice sized and good eating)
1 x Spotted cod, small one, but great eating fish.
Boat took about 15~16 Black Jewies in and we kept seven for the boat. Enough to feed my bunch, and his family till the next good tides in a months time!
Skippers son, Will got about ten Blue Salmon and had a ball on the Black Jewies ( his biggest was 128cm!!!! lucky bugger)
