Sunny Side Up Sunday

Hello Dear Reader,

Today I am grateful that Lovely Hubby and Son are fisherman. They love going fishing together, are both great anglers and know how to be safe in the boat and water. They never take any risks. But the best bit is being able to eat fresh fish every week. I know how very blessed we are and enjoy every mouthful. Lovely Hubby is also chief fish cook so I get a couple of nights off cooking during the week as well, win-win!

They only ever take their bag limit so there will be fish for the future and look after their catch so the integrity of the flesh remains intact. When they get home the fish is filleted, vacuum sealed and frozen straight away, again to preserve the quality of the fish. When we defrost a packet of fish fillets, it is like the day it was caught.

A Marlin caught during the Marlin Comp a few years ago, the Marlin is tagged is released

Apparently funny faces must be pulled when holding a fish😉

What are you grateful for today?

Have a lovely day,

    1. Hi Kathy,
      Lucky we all love fish, hey! I prefer reef fish to Pelagics, I don’t like a strong flavoured fish like mackerel so we mostly give those fish away. I agree some of those fish are huge. Have a lovely day,

  4. It great if you like fish and enjoy cooking it. I was bought up in Lockyer Valley, so fish only came with chips in newspaper. Its good to know there is still fish around the Moreton Bay. My uncle has for years fished in his tinny around the old Hornibrook bridge, always catching whiting and other small fish. Not seen fish that size since hubby fished 20km off Hinchinbrook Island. He now fishes in Tin Can Bay but not caught much there. The occasional reef trip off Double Island Point see fish that size. The only fish dish I can make is pan fried fresh barra or mangrove jack. Anything else I dry out! Unfortunately no barra at Tin Can. Erin

    1. Hi Erin,
      I grew up in Gympie and Dad was also a mad keen fisherman, we would be up at Tin Can Bay or Double Island Point most weekends, catching. Bream, whiting and Taylor. Lovely memories. Have a lovely day,
