Catch of the day!

170 posts in this topic

Sorry Ken, I made a blunder. The fish on the kitchen bench is what we call a kingfish. I should know. I've landed 3 of them on spear. Many reckon they taste better in the south where I am because the further north you go into warmer waters they contain worms apparently. I really like our kingfish as sashimi or island style from the belly. Fish ID has never been my strong point even after spending lots of hours in the water. I guess I just go after target species and ignore everything else. It's also interesting to see what different fish look like underwater, especially when deeper as the colour changes. Coral trout look a green/brown colour and blend in to the reef but are bright red when at the surface due to the red filtering out at depth.

The weather gods actually smiled on us down here in Melbourne. Got out in Port Phillip Bay and landed a couple of nice flathead.

I know what they are, but how do they taste? Can they be compared to mussels or oysters? They look beautiful!

Nice lineup for sure, short of CCs or not.
