    They are packies, tails measure 22 and 24 cm in case anyone was wondering. They look smaller folder up. Minimum size is 21.6cm.

    Yep good to eat, no not too tough, just fillet like normal cook in flour and egg.
    I also smoked the wings, frame and belly flaps, got heaps of meat off those which will make fish pie
    Even kept the head as have a mate who loves to boil them up !!

    Did you catch it on a rod or the long line?
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    @Shearer long line mate in 10m of h2o
    I wish It had been on the rod, I got one this time last year on my rod that went 28lb and they put up one hell of a fight when that size.
    Even tho today as soon as I got a hand on the long line back bone I could feel the big head shakes its not quite the same.
    Still pretty bloody exciting tho !!

    Last Monday my cousin got a 31-33pounder(two lots of scales one said 31 the other 33) in 7m in front of Rabbit.....the only fish he caught...just a lone moocher.
    he caught it on a small bit of kahawai fillet....three rods and burly pot out he did well to land it by himself I recon
    He has had a cast taken to get a mount made

    Smoke the head too, give it twice as long as the wings.....I have only recently started to do this and honestly it is the best meat of the whole fish but only worth fing around with on 10pounders plus imo.

    Big thanks for the company and the fishing at that little piece of paradise known as Okiwi bay. VC, you and the lad are amazingly keen, to say the least.
