was a great trip getting quite a good bag of puka nannies and a gemfish

using oceans legacy jigs

So good in fact that they have almost been completely wiped out in NSW from over fishing. There was a total ban on catching them about 30yrs ago and the stocks have never recovered. https://www.fish.gov.au/report/248-Gemfish-2018
