Growing local

My brother in law (another Paul) went fishing last weekend and, lucky for me, only caught one humungous whiting which he and my sister donated to me for dinner. Haven't had fish this fresh in forever. Baked it in a parcel with some crushed garlic and parsley and it was goooood.

Hi Craig, being down south I usually head over to Manly/Wynnum. But you'll find the same kind of fish along the entire Moreton Bay foreshore.

Here are some of the fish I got last week. Bream's the common species you'll find close to shore. They're around in plague numbers.

Nice work Joseph, where do you go fishing? I was given quite an expensive rod but sadly it doesn't see much action.

Not now :) When I was a kid I didn't where I went or how messy it was. Helped my Dad survey a road through a mangrove area once. Nowadays I would probably fall over and sink, never to be seen again lol.

Whiting love bloodworms but I can't see you knee deep in mangrove mud with a garden fork digging for those elusive critters :)

It was delish.

Yep I should go fishing on the Pine - but despite your faith, I have inherited no fishing skills. I garden, Dad fishes.

My daughters are pretty good at it though. I'll aim to get out with them and my grandson one day.

A whiting that size would be very tasty!

You're very close to the Pine River, you should go fishing there. I'm sure you have inherited skills. :)

I went fishing last week in the inflatable. I usually come home with a few fish but that session was exceptional. I ended up releasing quite a few bream after filling the little esky.
