Great result with the GP Ross, and must say Arius adds a certain class to the other fellas.

Following the enjoyment of last week I think I'll return for a 3-4 day burst before the next school holidays.

After trying Gilbo's Cob Cooker I bought one and might try smoking arius and see if that helps his appeal :lol:

I have tried eating one or two Forkies in the past (because some bloke from Torbanlea reckoned they were tasty) but I obviously didn't prepare them properly or used the wrong river rock.
Aaaahhh!! my work here is done

Sounds like you had a great day for fishing Ross. At least you caught a fish worth catching, that was a very nice yella. Well done & great on you for releasing it to fight another day. :wink:

Got some feed back from the fishing comp at Wivenhoe when we were there, all competitors caught there bass from 7.30am till 9.00am and then they sat there and enjoyed there view, apparently the fish go extremely shut mouth and you can't tempt them with anything. The winning competitor won with a bag limit of 2 fish and a weight of 5.5kg, that is 2 very big fish. :shock:

Ross your lucky having access to closer launch areas to fishable grounds from the sailing club.

Karl

here is the answer http://tinyurl.com/e5www

Of interest is the following opinion on bass, from the same site....

Native Fish Australia stongly encourages the use of only catch and release fishing when targeting bass in its native streams. In stocked dams, however, bass fishing for the table within the legal bag and size limits is supported and encouraged.

Thanks Richo, methinks there is some more research to be done however, as in wivenhoe and other such 'dams' there are considerable distances to be traveled upstream to spawn. I am guessing that they are referring to land locked dams, and not impoundments on major waterways.

I've had two in the last week and was quite surprised to find them go down very well, first one I did in a marinade of ginger, garlic and chilli powder and the other one I did half in beer batter and the other half in a thai ginger sauce, all went bloody beautiful. :D

Ho Ross,

Seriously, this time :D When you fillet yellowbelly, skin them and you will see a line of fat like tissue directly beneath the where the dorsal fin was and likewise above the anal fin. remove ALL of that then cook normally. very good. (same applies for bass)

While the second one was in a beer batter, you failed to mention the first was eaten with copious quantities of beer 'au naturel' :lol:

Yes Richo, it would thoroughly drowned in garlic, ginger and chilli, but it was still delicious. :p
The first fish had no fat in it at all, but the second one had a small amount, once this was removed it was as nice a piece of fish as from the first fish.
