Mixed bag from Rotto

Mixed bag from Rotto

Harly from 20m

Dhu on a Octo jig from 31m

The rest from 37m. Blue Groper a first for me and went hard for its size

Relativly slow day, covered some ground to find the fish. Activity picked up after 1430.

The Pink Snapper fillets were mush, been a few years since I caught a mushy pinky. Anyone knows what causes this?

As Russ said, it is very strange that the pinky's flesh was mushy.

I do recall something that Mushy flesh in a fish that you normally dont expect it in is a infection with some sort of worm. But dont quote me. I think you can still eat them but they taste funny.

I remember catching some nice rankins with evidence of worms in the off the Murions. The decky just laughed and cooked it up on the barbie. Looks of disgust from the crew but it went down a treat.
