Taste

We cooked it whole on the BBQ and it was pretty good.... a mild taste. Was a bit worried about the ciguatera that you can apparently get.
As for the boats, I only own one and was babysitting one for a mate

We got a nice 71cm Chiny today. Got it on the vid camera too. Don't need to worry about ciguatera here though.

I'm pretty sure there has been no reported cases of ciguatera poisoning around north-west WA. We eat all our chinaman and never had a problem.

Good fun to catch as well at 82cm
