Re: Effing couta

you cant be serious re snapper poor quality table fish. I rate snapper as good to very good along with flathead, KGW, Gars, Squid ect. I've never rated Snapper as much of an eating fish - 35 to 45 cm aren't to bad under 35 have little flesh and over 45 start getting dry and tasteless yes you can st...

Re: Effing couta

funny thing when I was a kid ( 50 years or so back ) and dear old dad use to take us Surf fishing at Woolamai it was normally fish and chips on the way home at San Remo -- Couta was one of the more popular fish in the day and I still don't mind eating it today couta is also an excellent bait in fact...

Re: Budget Bait.

With the snapper coming into Western Port and Port Phillip going from a trickle to a steady flow. Plenty of people are keen on catching a few reds.
