    Re: Deep-drop

    Do you find the deep dwellers switch on and off the same as shallower species or affected by moon phases/tides etc?

    Can you haul pots on the Trev? Be prime for Spanner crabs on the way back from out deep as well.

    Yeah they can be very fickle
    There with lockjaw or biting their heads off
    Try and work with solunar tables - seems to align with better bite times etc

    They were certainly that way a couple of weekends ago. Departed 0530 in a mates rig - grand total till 1230pm - 1 eastern nanny fishing from 500 plus back into 250. Would have been very easy to call it quits (would have been a certainty without the winches). Then it was like someone flicked a switch - nothing of note when it comes to deep dropping but cod, flamies and a few other ooglies………..and a black spot pigfish out of left field up until about 3.30 when we shot through. It's hard to believe when you are in that depth over literal clouds of bait and bigger targets that nothing is hungry.

    Hi Chris
    The flesh is firm and the flavour is mild
    I use the spine, wings and belly flaps for Thai green curry
    I boil the fish for an hour let it cool sufficient to remove the bones from the flesh
    I then use the stock for cooking organic brown rice with
    In the pot I have
    2 tins of mango cheeks diced
    Fish meat
    2 tins if diced tomatoes
    2 very heaped teaspoons of green Thai curry
    When cooked add 2 tins of coconut cream and simmer - do not boil
    To die for mate

    The Blue Eye heads are quite valuable to the restraunts Trevor as they are full of meat and make fantastic stock so keep your heads for boiling up as well.

    Re: Deep-drop

    Hey Trev, been watching your posts re the deep drop. I used isolation up country and no fraser trip as an excuse to set myself up with a bit of 2nd hand stuff (tanacoms). Few last bits to sort and hoping to give the ooglies a crack in the next month or so. Do you use lights on your rigs??

    Blue Eye are sensational eating, not a "fishy" taste as such, but equal (I reckon way better) than any popular reef fish, including Red Emperor (in my opinion) check the price of Blue Eye in shops.
