Cheers - never thought to consider eating one! I heard once that most of the fish and chips fish in the UK is shark.

Re: Narrowneck 19.1

Well done - have not fished in ages. Three young kids is a killer... Out of interest, how did you fillet and cook that shark?

Great fish. Well done. What did it weigh in the end? And what did you catch it on?

Re: NN 20/09 - PB Smashed

Well done - great fish for our hood. My best from NN is also 71 cm - but the fish was pretty skinny and only weighed 12.5 pounds. Yours looks fat as a tick. I guess that is the difference between spring fish and autumn fish - my 71 cm fish was caught in April. Hate to say it - but I think The Mayor’...

Nice. I have had lots of good winter fishing there - you just need to fish closer in during the winter.

Trailers

Hi - I am considering getting a trailer for my kayak, for a variety of reasons. Any recommendations? And are there any out there that can double as a general purpose trailer too, while also being able to tow a kayak? If there are - this would be easier to get sign off on from my wife.... Thanks.

Nice to see. My wife and I also managed 13 between the two of us today.... unfortunately our 13 were nappy changes - not snapper!

Re: Sorry folks another NN TR

The place fishes well all year. Before I had kids, I used to catch snapper every month of the year there... you just need to change tactics with the seasons.
The boats normally bugger off by May.
Don’t write it off, chaps!
