Forgot it was a public holiday but nice whiting saves the day!


Recommended Posts

I must have been feeling relaxed lately, in holiday mode as I assumed today was back to normal with maybe a whole lot of people back at work. I realised I had it wrong when I was driving to the ramp at 6am and parking was all gone! Checked and whoops today was another public holiday. Launched and headed around to chase a few squid as I already collected nippers yesterday. Got a few smaller models in the bag by 7am and my son-in-law who was staying over texted me to come and join me so I picked him up nad we headed over to the flats to chase some whiting. With a massive tide rolling in the fish seemed to be spread far and wide with us only picking up 2 keepers in an hour or so. Headed around to another area flooded with the tide and picked up a few more but mostly undersized. On the run home we trolled a couple of nippers behind the boat with the electric and my son in law's rod bends over, after a short fight a thumping whiting comes aboard measuring 42cm (his first ever whiting and a nice PB to start the account😁). We were being beckoned to come home and go and get some fish and chips with the family but we decided the catch deserved a beer batter cook up. After a quick fillet job it was beer battered fish and calamari with a couple of coldies for lunch. Happy new year!
