    Yes, but more correctly, stargazer. It came home for dinner

    I have caught a couple over the years (on lures of course) and found the flesh to be quite rubbery but good flavor. Ideal for a curry.

    I'm going with the "tastes like crayfish" vibe

    OK, so took advice and didn't overcook it. Very lightly poached in butter in the oven. Definitely nothing like crayfish. Just like blue cod.

    Off Yamba in this today.
    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out

    They have very slimy skin but are tasty.

    Machines I work with to fillet Hoki were originally designed to process them and other northern hemisphere whitefish.
    I have never seen one...do they quickly go soft like a hoki or snapper or are they more robust like a orange roughy or Ling?

    We did alright but less than half as many as last time...water Temps and salinity are down so always get a few less this time of year.
