We’ve been loving fishing some early morning snapper trips. The morning always looks amazing no matter the weather and it’s so peaceful out there… until the reds start biting. Then it’s on! Great fun. Snapper have been a variety of sizes but fairly consistent and after we’ve gone for snapper we will usually have a fish for a few other things, all going well.

Our favourite King George whiting have been of good size and consistent. We love our whiting because there’s a little finesse to catching them and if you drop one, all their friends down there know about it for the next 15 minutes or so until they come back on the chew. It makes fishing a challenge and we enjoy being able to send our customers home with smiles on their faces and whiting for dinner, because it’s our favourite local and sustainable eating fish. Whiting tastes amazing. Ask us for some recipes!
