Just got back in. What a session. Started off with a 37cm Luderick or blackfish. Every cast got a hit and I probably let just as many go again. Shame it wasnt yesterday could have had a few more entries :D :D :D

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.

No doubt about it Breambo, you're making those lures pay their way. Well done. The luderick would have been fun on the light gear.

Sounds like a good session Breambo.

Just wondering where you store your catch on the Espri? Above or below deck.

Did you say a "SHADAP" lure?? Hey, that's what we used in Italy to fish with. Except ours made a loud explosion when it hit the water, and all the fish would come to the surface. That would make em shadap...
BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

Great stuff,
what a sesh. Good add for the lure too. The blackfish especially would have gone off, they seem to go particularly hard when taken on lures and they're not exactly sodft normally.
Cheers

Thanks for the replies,
It was a hot session for sure, they ranged from 42- 55 cm and the 6 I let go were all well over 40. Watertime was about an hour and a half. It nearly took longer to fillet and skin them. If I stayed another hour I would have hit the bag limit. :lol:
I know blackfish are highly sought after by some, but I prefer other fish, as in past years I have spearfished for them considering them not much on the chew, but once again my trusty fishing book rates them highly if prepared properly. I filleted and skinned it carefully and mixed with a couple of flathead tails in soft totillas, some lettuce cheese, chilli,tomato, sour cream and salsa, they tasted fantastic ! :wink:
All the flathead fought extremely well, I recieved a couple of spikes, one in the finger and one in the heel, there was plenty of blood spilt on both sides :lol: When the final bell rang I was surprised the 15lb leader and knots survived, the lure losing a hook from a treble the only other damage. Alvey 41/2 on 9lb unscathed. 8)
WayneD - I keep my catch in a cotton drawstring laundry bag, tied by my right side that I toss behind me. I keep my tackle boxes in there as well, the bag stays wet and cool. It was bulging today but not full. :D
I'll give it another crack tomorrow, I wonder if it will be as good ? :? :lol:

You had a busy time mate and a session to remember.

Would you have been at the rocks end of your fishing patch to get the blackfish?

For the table they must be bled,skinned and blacklining removed for good eating.

You're certainly getting your share of omega3 with the fish meals at present.
