    ANYTHING bigger than 8kilos doesn't make it to my freezer. If it does, it's for bait purposes. Probably a little O.T.T., but I hate puking!

    Used to chase the Spaniards up the Inside of Fraser, anything of size say over 7kg mmm well the "Poor Old Pussy Cat' would get first go (Pieces nearest to backbone). 8hrs later if Pussy showing no ill effects, out come the Filleting Knife (Always Fillet Them) oh and the Crispy Skin yum. Pussy Cat lived to be about 14.
