Good footage

Sun, 2007-01-28 22:15

Hopefully it turned out well. Yep I got a dhuie just 5 minutes before this one and we had film of that too. I called it for a ray at first as it just wouldn't come up but pretty soon I recognised the tell tale thump of that big tail.

Both fish were roughly the same weight and one was male the other female.

Macattack Charters

Mon, 2007-01-29 16:18

Now there's an idea...

How much are people willing to pay for a fish like that.... at $60 per kilo its not a bad return if you get one...

Individual guided charters... hey Adam, if you weren't heading up to Exmouth we could have done a deal with you as my cameraman and deckie we could charge punters $1000 per head for a day out, with film highlights of them catching that.............whiting of a lifetime. (Hehehe)

Cheers

Expensive whiting

Mon, 2007-01-29 16:20

Dhuie might be $60 kg but I saw whiting fillets for $50 kg. Not far off.

Now if only I could catch a 6 kilo whiting...

6 kilo's of whiting fillets is about 200 fish.

Thats a lot of fish and several trips to get them.

Good onya Shamu

Mon, 2007-01-29 18:37

Was a great day out and we both put plenty of effort in before we were rewarded with those two beauties.

Wait till you see the video I just put together Shamu, looks great. I will try and burn a dvd or vcd of the unedited version for you in super high resolution. The one on the site will only be 79mb or 40mb.

Cheers
