The second fish wasn't as large as the first but the young chap was absolutly delighted to land a good sized Flathead. On you Albert.


Great job helping him out. Shows it pays to have a variety of leader weights with you. When it fires at that pier it really produces a good amount of fish! I think my best day there was 3 flathead and 4 bream in 2 hours.

No-one ever knows everything, I really hate it when people think they know everything or rub it in your face that they know how to do something you don't. Its great learning new things! I love to teach and I love to learn. The wise man that said that to you was 100% right.

so good. all about the shallow fried flat head.

Squids Fish Tacos

INGREDIENTS

1/4 red cabbage, finely shredded
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice or lime juice 
2 cobs corn, husks and silks removed
60ml (1/4 cup) olive oil or rice bran oil
1 avocado, mashed
corn flake crumbs.
a couple eggs
1 French shallot, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh coriander leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons plain flour
1 teaspoon ground coriander
paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
400g white fish fillets, cut into strips
4 flour tortillas, warmed through
1 tablespoon light sour cream
Fresh coriander leaves, to serve
Thinly sliced fresh jalapeno chilli, to serve (optional)
Lime cheeks, to serve
Hot chilli sauce, to serve
vegetable oil

METHOD
Step 1 
Mix the cabbage, extra virgin olive oil and 1 tbs of the lemon or lime juice in a bowl until well combined. 
Step 2 
Cook the corn in a steamer set over a saucepan of simmering water for 10 minutes or until just tender.
Step 3 
Preheat a barbecue plate or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Brush the corn with 1 tsp of the olive oil. Add the corn and cook, turning occasionally, for 10 minutes or until charred. Remove the kernels from the cob.
Step 4 
Combine the avocado, shallot, coriander and remaining lemon or lime juice in a bowl.
Step 5 
Combine the flour, ground coriander, paprika, oregano and cayenne pepper in a large shallow bowl. Turn the fish in the flour mixture to coat, then roll in beaten eggs, then roll in corn flake crumbs. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the fish and cook for 2 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through. Drain on paper towel.
Step 6 
Divide the tortillas among plates. Top with the cabbage mixture, corn, fish, avocado, sour cream, coriander and chilli, if desired. Serve with the lime cheeks and chilli sauce.
