I can only comment on the smoked one I did and I had to fight the kids to get just one piece. It went down real well with a glass of white!
I fish because it's cheaper than therapy

Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish. If you are desperate for the old content of this particular post, it is available below base64 encoded and bzip2 compressed.

No, the gates don't close. We stay down there all night because we're foolish.

Thanks to AKFF Select I just had a read of this report, missed it the first time around somehow.

Hairtail flesh looks nice and reasonably light in colour, does it have a mild taste or is it strong flavoured?

The weather looked pretty crap at the ramp.

It's quite mild Con and the fillets are thin and broad so they soak up the smoke flavour (or any other flavour for that matter) really well.
RIP AKFF
