    A 1.6 kg KG Whiting caught in Tassie..

    Probably a bit to do with their diet as well. I'm careful when filleting all fish. If you cut the stomach cavity sometimes the colour/smell puts you off immediately. The texture of the bigger ones can be a bit coarse which may not suit everyone. Anyway sitting down to a whiting steak has always appealed to me...

    Issues with logging in to S&H...

    @fridgeYes Ctrl F5 does work but having to use it every time is a pain. S&H is the only site I have this problem with.
  3. Couldn't find another place to post this...I use Google Chrome on a Win 7 PC. I continually have to log in to different threads. This makes using S&H a pain, so I give up.Any help for a frustrated user would be appreciated...

    Identification help needed...

    Hi all,Just had some feedback from the Australian Museum. Suggestion is that it could be a juvenile Rainbow Cale (Heteroscarus acroptilus - sometimes called Odax acroptilus). One of my reference books has a picture of this - called a Rainbow Fish).Thanks to all for their input,Meggs

    Not a gurnard - just had one on the BBQ. Not too bad to eat - you just have to negotiate the spines when filleting them...

    Identification help needed...

    Picture captured in 25 m of water in Investigator Strait. Reefy area - nearly had to donate the SARCA when it got well and truly stuck...
  12. Hi all,You've helped me out before. Need to know what this critter is? Picture isn't great, water was a bit murky and the fish is not very big.Meggs
  13. Hi all,I'm away in the country at the moment and my internet connection is slow (when it exists)...To the topic - can anyone name the beast I caught the other day (see picture). I tried doing a search on the Australian Museum site but it was too frustrating...TIA,Meggs
