A grunt, grunt of a day..

#1 Post by SpiritFisha » Tue Nov 26, 2019 11:27 am

Another beautiful morning on the water the past weekend and the fishing did not disappoint. 3 Grunter, a small GT (estuary model) and a #$%&* Toad fish, which destroyed my favourite soft vibe.

thes grunters look like a fair fish. I don't mind those travally on the chew nice wide shoulders on them and firm white flesh mild flavor. think there called a tea leaf trevally if they got black spots/speckles over the body.

A few nice fish there, they bring back great memories. The Grunter was my Grandfather's favourite fish to eat and many enjoyable fishing trips were had in the Tully River in the sixties, fishing for them out of an old wooden flatty which was rowed out at night.
