Worse than blowies

Worse than blowies

Went out Saturday and Yesterday and got absolutely smashed by the black ass both days!! This one was the biggest at 510mm and my PB.

Manned up and headed out our deepest ever yesterday to around 80m found tonnes of good ground and it payed off. landed around a dozen 450mm plus black ass, only kept 3. Unfortunately they were on every bit of good ground so it wasnt much of a mixed bad, but im not complaining they taste bloody good.

for anyone keeping an eye on temps it was 25 in 80m, 24.3 behind the ffb and on the way back we had a dip in the very comfy 25.5 degree water in the sound.

Nice fish. I had a similar experience just north of ffb yesterday in 15m, on top of the reef line. Must be the season! The only problem is they count towards your demersal bag limit, so it's always a dilemma to keep one in case the next hit is a pair of big snapper :-) Dan

They put up a shit fight but the taste more than makes up for it - if you get a goodun like yours. 


If I spent half as long fishing , as I do reading this bloody forum , I'd be twice the fisherman I am.
