Those mongrel Shitters

Postby freecamper » Sun Feb 23, 2014 9:43 pm

Since i have been fishing here in south oz i seem to catch 1 good fish and a whole lot of these shitters (little stripy things that croak like a stoned toad). Since i had a few tommy's to smoke i thought that what the heck, give em a go. Cant really go wrong , either they taste good or they taste crap. Must say that they taste :lek: :grin: bloody good. Have to do em i fillets though cause they seem to have worms in them sometimes . I only cut up ten and two had worms in them , so i suppose from now on shitters have another use besides crab bait.
