Great report LX
Who shall be known from this time on as "The Squid Whisperer" , , , , or "The Mate Humbler". Great that you took the opportunity and got out , , , , as the saying goes , , , , "you snooze and your mates are going to draw moustaches on you" , , , , or something like that.
nice catch and some beauties in there too.
As far as the pigment thing , , , , I thing they all don't have enough crumbs on them , , , , or floured salt & pepper , , , , either way, still the wrong colour , , , , golden brown = yum
Thanks Mr Bug!
I’m just glad we have some fresh bait sorted and vac packed
for the coming weeks!!!
My mates sorting out the pillies as well this weekend. I think he said he’s going to bulk buy about 40 kilos of it
hopefully some snappers will come our way in the near future
That's the trick too , , , , vac sealing bait.
I don't have a Vac Seal thingymabob , , , , but I use zip lock sandwich bags and make sure I get as much air out of them. The air does "age" the bait and no air minimises freezer burn. The squid when defrosted still has that translucent fresh look. I have small portions in the zip bags and only defrost as I need. I keep un-opened bait as frozen as possible when out so it can go back in the freezer as best as possible.
A mate takes ALL his bait out, and ALL his berley with him , , , , and at the end of the trip it goes back into his chest freezer in the buckets. His bait stinks like a rubbish tip and is awful , , , , the squid is mainly pink looking
, , , , and he wonders why he catches very little.
Cheers, fresh Bugatti , , , , especially to the Trivago chick (sorry Jim
