    They are good eating I prefer blue cod myself but they are not that plentiful here.

    Awesome Must get out and do more fishing rather than chasing deer. Hey cam, on those gurnard do you just fillet them or do you use the secret method.

    I tend to fillet them and leave the guts in untouched.

    Always keen to learn something new tho.

    Nice!

    Hopefully it stays that good down there and our cod fishery improves, over the trial closure of the sounds fishery for recreational fishers cod size and abundance didnt change but commercial take increased 40% !

    Its clear where the problem lies with our fishery.

    So yours is getting better?

    I've been fishing down here since I was a kid, so 20 years plus. Used to get good cod off the rocks, but harder to do that now.

    Saturday would've rated up there as one of the best days in years for numbers of fish and of consistent size. We're lucky in that the weather plays a huge role in protecting our fishery, both from a commercial and recreational perspective.

    For us min size for Southland is 33cm and 20 per person-all of the cod I caught were 38cm or bigger. Got 4 that went 50+cm!

    Rarely do we take our 20 each - especially if off the boat when there's 5-7 of us. That's alot of fish!

    I only ended up with 5 of them after 3 stops to visit friends on the way home!

    Our snapper fishery is recovering...for how long remains to be seen because the comercials are calling for a quota increase on them.

    There is no evidence the cod fishery is improving despite heavy restrictions on recreational fishers because commercial take what the recs dont as proven in the total catch returns.

    We are 2 per person @33 or greater.

    Our scollops have been near fished out of existence and now the sounds is closed and the eastern side of Tasman bay...but yet there is still trawlers towing their bottom gear over the closed scollop grounds smashing scollops and smothering them in a cloud of silt.

    Cam, what you do is take the whole gurnard as is, ungutted, hold the tail and cut the spikes and fins of the top of its back. So in other words take a few mils of its back taking the fins and spikes of. Then cut behind the head until you break the bone then grapping the head you just snap the gurnard in half, , pulling the skin off in one good pull and the guts just comes out as well. So you now have a skinless, gutless fish and its done in seconds. Check out Utube, shows you there and seems to work well on the ones ive tried it on
