    Default One For MSB

    Fellow at the ramp today had a bucket of pony fish. He was giving his whiting to the pelicans. Reckons the pony fish are heaps better eating. Clean the slime off, two diagonal shallow body cuts. Rub with salt and squeeze some lemon then fry them. Reckons if we try it we won’t eat anything else.

    Ron- can you try and let us know please.

    Geez Gunna, was this guy Italian or Greek (no offence to any Italian or Greek fishermen on the site) maybe he is right, I know I caught a couple of big blue catties one morning and brought them back to the ramp to give to a mate of mine for crab bait, an Italian guy was staying at his house and instead of crab bait they were turned into fillets, soaked overnight in milk, and deep fried in batter, my mate reckons they were sensational, go figure.

    To answer your question I will give it a go for you next time I catch one, which shouldn't be to hard as they can be pests from about now till Xmas.

    Big ask Gunna, but I will take one for the team, just don't tell anyone OK.

    How have you been by the way, haven't seen any posts from you for a while, hope you are all good.

    Ron

    All good now Ron. Thanks for asking. I am in remission. Just haven’t fished enough. Today’s trip was my first for nearly six months!

    The pony dude was a bit eccentric. Had A raft type thing with an outboard setup. And a straggly beard. Can’t trust that lol. But it was a full bucket of pony fish and he chases them specifically. Anything else is bycatch.
