Trevally

Recommended Posts

Nah....took my Kayak out at Ardrossan grain jetty. It was a slow morning with loads of Ruggers, but i reckon the Trevally pull hard pound for pound compared to the Snapper. Cheers for the info.....smoker it is. They'll make good sized Fillets

The grain jetty sounds like a great venue that you can't access land based....What size were the trevally? They would have been good fun in a yak. You could even pin a small one to an 8-0 and see if there are any jewies around

Yeah it's a good spot & i reckon there's some big fish down there, but the rolling swell made it impossible to anchor up, so it was hard work maintaining a consistent fishing position.As i was paddling back to the ramp i noticed a pair of legs 2/3rds of the way along the jetty with a line out. So some local knows a way out there. :laugh: This evening i Smoked a dozen fillets with some "Mallee" sawdust from Tackle World for 10mins & left to cool in the tin for 5 mins. They've turned out really nice. A subtle flavour & not heavily salty. Really pleased with the result. An incredible amount of oil cooked out.Don't write off the Trevs ;) Smokings the way to go :)

They ranged from 25 to 30cm & the Snaps were all around the 25 mark. All taken on slithers of Pilchard.As Mango said the Trevs turned out to be a big hit with my colleagues at work. Unfortunately i'm now gonna have to ration them out :laugh:
