    Kadina Market - 19 January 2019

    Hi all If you are one of the lucky ones to be holidaying on Yorkes at the moment or are one of the even luckier ones who permanently live on Yorkes, come and say hello to me and my wife at the Kadina Markets on January 19th. I will have most of my range of sinkers available and will also be taking pre-orders. I will also be doing a special price on the sinkers for the market as well This is a new experience for me and if this is successful, we may be doing a few more markets on yorkes as well. Just hope that the weather plays ball, as I may be taking the fishing roads, for a sneaky fish on the way home David

    YFW fillets

    Any decent seafood resturants use weights. Alot of fish will curl. When i cook any fish weather it be whitting or garfish il use a saucepan lid and push hard on the fish skin down. Creating contact with the skin and pan. Crispy skin. No curling.

    Keeping sounder wires tidy

    I ran mine in flexible conduit then used zip ties. You can get the conduit with a split in it so you push the cables in rather than thread them through

    All good, but get someone else to do the cleaning....problem solvered. . No need to scale fish over 3kg. Just skin or cook with scales on as they come off simple as with the skin & keep the moisture in. .

    Keeping sounder wires tidy

    +1 for this. A buddy of mine has this in his tinny running along the inside of the gunnal. Keeps the wires well out of the way tidily.

    Absolute gun bait. great also for bream, flathead, mullet, tommies etc. A gentle lob cast unweighted on a soft tipped rod and allowed to drift or slowly retrieved they are deadly. I've found that if you keep winding when you feel a bite it improves the hookup rate.

    YFW fillets

    Odd question, but any reason a YFW fillet (scaled, skin on) would warp/curl up when being cooked? Last few batches I have done, some of the larger fillets have curled up and the flesh tends to be chewier. Only seems to happen with the models to go above mid 30s. The smallers models come up beautiful, everytime. Im assuming it is something I am doing wrong, possibly during the filleting process? I know with squid and whole fish, you can score/cut the flesh to prevent / reduce curling, but I've never seen this with straight fish fillets. Any advice / ideas would be greatly appreciated. Cheers TL

    On Yorkes I use size 4 for YFW & they catch other species as well, even small stuff. I put the point of the hook in at the base of the underside of the tail and thread them down the hook & come out in the head. This also serves to help keep the body on better. Hope this is helpful

    YFW fillets

    Bigger ones always do. Just happened to me tonight. Bigger fish always have a different texture to their flesh. I stopped keeping flathead over 65cm for this reason. I too would love to know a solution. Never thought of scoring the fish. But will give it a try. Cheers, Des

    Great creek fish, that's something you'd normally pulled out of a dam or the northern rivers. 8 fish is a bloody good session when it includes that one.

    Flathead

    Caught a good one on Kingston Jetty on my way through, casting soft plastics. No idea if it was a fluke or you could do that along many of the calmer beaches in the area, though.

    wirinna breakwater anything being caught?

    When the marina was first built, we used to get schoolies inside the marina. Right next to the pontoon that the KI ferry used to dock onto.The pontoon is gone, but the concrete that it used to be bolted to is still there.Hot Feb arvos as the sun went down, pillies for bait.On the outside, cast out a Tommy under a float and get the squid whilst you burley up the gar n Tommys.

    Just a tip kgbeats,the northern end of gleesons is a tricky spot to find if you dont know your way around there,its not a matter of just rocking up,you have to access it via a track on your right ,before you get to gleesons landing itself,then there are several tracks to your left leading in through the dunes and only one of them is the right one,and then you need a 4x4 to get in,or a long long walk.There is another way in to even better beach,at the extreme northern end,and thats also a 4x4 track that leads in from swincers rocks.Same deal with that as well.Not trying to put you off at all just saying.good luck on your trip ,cheers
