Brother in law has done as always a great job of filleting them, wife then packed in meal size zip lock bags, then frozen ready to place in our caravan frig to eat as we travel.

Lightly flour then pan fried with minimal oil, yum yum.

What more could I say.

Last year around the say time we were catching black fish which I was hoping to do again as I did enjoy my morning the first for over 50 years fishing with light gear, home made floats, very light flexible rod.

Back in my childhood days living at The Entrance in the 50/60's it was very hard to catch a black fish as the Professionals were netting heavily, what we caught was small and most times we would end up with small whiting but now black fish have come as with other varities, back year after year. Hard part my Brother in law tells me is finding the good weed that grows in the lake, one year it is here next its over there, never in the same place twice.

All good, enjoy

Yep been bread n butter fisho for as long as the brain lets me remember :) ,Have fished from WA to QLD n just about caught everything on my bucket list save for the KG Whiting which all going well will get ticked off. Bought a Van n sold the big tinny (Big mistake ) selling the big tinny that is :). Went into withdrawels so just had to get another tinny though smaller this time keep the nerves from falling apart :). So keen have made my own cast nets , lures to custom rod building though wouldnt go down that track again , just use that spare time to either fish or hook the Van up n travel N.S.W. Northern Rivers has been more than kind for fishing off the bank and mainly chase Whiting , Bream , Jew n Flatties with other species. Some really beutifull country down that way which still awaits exploring with Nambucca Heads prime for blackies(luderick) using cabbage sea cabbage that is on a paternoster rig as am not flamboyant or patient enough to sit there staring at a float bobbing up n down, go crosseyed lol. someone mentioned Iluka ??, yes true right from the little beach to the right of the breakwall to all the way out along the breakwall BUT !!! Keep a good eye on the sea , swell n waves and if your getting on in years like me look for the flat n easy rocks to get to with a good easy fast exit. Good fish get caught in the rocks below , let it go dont try scramble down after it. Yes always carry a swag od soft plastics but its the fresh bait that get the feed mostly. Only release with this little ducky is if they are too small , not to taste , or if weve caught our feed then I stop fishing. like I said :), bread n butter fisho only :). Most important I feel if most our younger generation took an interest in Recreation activeties akin to fishing , camping halfe the battle won in their life n outlook. not many fish ive had an interest in chasing , catching and havent done so :).

I try to get out so I can teach worms how to swim, but until I retired, there wasnt a lot of time. I am giving very serious consideration to a fishing kayak. I still have my first fibreglass rod, which I bought as a kid in my first job- a Jarvis Walker Black Queen. That rod is definitely put away. My latest kit is an Ironman Travelmaster Multi-rod kit, which I purchased online to give me plenty of combinations. I also have three other two piece rods and a telescopic rod which lives in my tug along with a reel and small tackl box just for those occasions when I am out and there is an opportunity to wet a line in an estuary.
