Very true, Michelle, Thanks.

Interesting...I didn't read that about them, Shirley. Some things you have to experience first-hand. I agree with you, Shirley, and believe that as long as we keep learning, we stay young! ;-D

Michelle, I had not heard of a Morwong either, and the odd thing about them after they come out of the salt water they change colour to a silvery colour, we are never to old to learn. Thank you, Michelle.

Thanks Ank, I caught it and reeled it in, then our son inlaw did the rest, was a lot of fun though.

Wow! So glad that you had a great time, Shirley, and caught the biggest fish too! (And he was th---is big!) Like Francine, I hadn't heard of a Morwong either so I too had to do a search ... the things we learn on Jigidi U! Thank you.

Wow Shirley, that's a fish. I think you're brave. I never fish.

I knew I had a reasonably large fish on the line Sally, and our son inlaw gave advice but made me reel it in, looking back I'm glad he let me reel it in, that was half the fun. Thanks Sally. :):)

Thanks Robbos, this was only my second time out on a boat, on a fishing trip, I did enjoy it.

Thank you Patti, bigger enough for me.

Way to go Shirley.... Looks like this one would give you a fun fight, on light line... Thank you.... :) :)

Robbos

Nothing better than a fishing trip where you catch and keep the big and release the small.

Looks big to me!!! Nice job!!!

In this spieces I did, Rob, mine being 40 cm, and my husband's being 32 cm, I didn't count the over all number, of cause there were the ones that were under size that were released, I think I'd have to give it to my husband, our daughter caught the largest but had to cut him free, that was a huge turtle that became tangled in her line. exciting time.

Thanks Francine, it is known by other names as well, it is from the Sweet Lip family of fish, some people don't like this fish to eat, we found this one ok, very soft flesh, My husband and I had never seen them before either, our son inlaw is the a very dedicated fisherman and knew what it was.

Thanks Suzy, for a non fishing person, he did take a little reeling in, great fun though.

Interesting to google this type of fish - unknown to husband and me. Made for a fun puzzle. Thanks Shirley. (:48)

Well done. Bet he put up a bit of a fight for you.

Welcome back, Shirley. Glad you enjoyed your fishing holiday. :))
...bookmarking yours for after supper.

Thank you ever so much, chookies, there was a lot of fresh water in the river and very dirty when we arrived, it was much better on Sunday the last day we were there, we did better then we expected too.

chookies

Nice to see you back from your fishing trip, shirley, and great to hear that you caught a fish or two. This one's a beauty and I bet he tasted just as good too!!
