Tastes very much like tuna, but it goes off faster.

About a dozen that we got yesterday will be frozen ready for Andrews (/\the guy holding the fish above/\) 21st birthday at the end of this month, on the day before I will defrost them and hot smoke them ready to be eaten.

Here's a Big Ugly (black drum) caught and released in the Intracoastal Waterway. And my largest flounder, gigged at San Luis Pass.
Hopefully I have some new fish pics from fishing with the kayak soon.:D

Cracking fish mate!!!

What bait/lures, rods, line did you use???

They catch flounder like that in Japan from the beach on plugs (crankbaits).

The drum was caught on cracked blue crab half using a med heavy boat rod, 30lb braided Power Pro line.
I think I caught 3 that day and my arm gave out.:D

We catch flounders on plastics, spoons, and finger mullets mostly.

What depth of water are you in, what's the tide run like? Do you have to use heavy leads?

Surprisingly to me, Britain has some of the largest tides in the world.

The Intracoastal WW is prolly 15 to 20' deep there, and there is tidal currents. I think we used 1/2 oz egg slip sinkers to get the bait down.

Nice fish!! Your drum looks a lot like our spotfin croaker.

Is that a summer flounder? If it is, it's very similar to our California halibut - same Genus

spotfin:


California halibut:

similarities to summer flounder include the large mouth with large teeth and 3-pointed tail

Here's the fish that we chase the most.
Bull reds.
Moonpie is one of the luckiest or more likely the best at fishing for them.
His strikes to hookup ratio is unbelievable!
Here he is doing a Wilson impersonation with a bull at San Luis pass.

It's a southern flounder, the left side is the top. All others are right side top.

Cheers for the pics guys, those really are some beauty fish right there.
I would love to catch Halibut/Flounder, the big flounder here are only about a foot long.
And that Big Ugly, that looks like a fun catch.

Hi Te Hopo.

This is an old picture of a very small pike that I caught, it can only be a couple of pounds.

Maybe you can get an idea of a pikes tooth structure from this. When I catch a bigger one I'll take some mouth and jaw shots for you.



p.s. I think the photo looks a bit phallic, sorry about that!

Cheers man, I can see the size of those teeth, makes them an even more impressive fish.
Do you use a trace to catch them, and if you do, wire or heavy mono?

Trust you to think of that, the thought never even crossed my mind. :D

On my ultra light spinning setup I generally use 10lb wire trace and crimp on a swivel to one end and a lure clip to the other (I make them myself). If I'm using this setup I'm usually catching chub and perch but sometimes a pike might take the small lure (1-4grm lure weights). If I get a pike I check the wire, if it's kinked I'll change to a new one so the lure still runs "true".

On my medium outfit I use a 20lb~30lb (usually 30lb) wire trace because I use 1oz (28grm) lures and I'm more likely to get pike. I can also catch pike quiet a few pike on them same trace without having to change over (I usually buy traces in this strength and change the lure clips for better ones).

On my jerkbait rod I use 60lb wire traces, that probably sounds excessive but I use 80lb braid, which sounds even more excessive!!! (I always buy my extra heavy traces).

Generally pike aren't line shy, they're just keyed into killing your lure.

Using the heavy braid and trace mean that if you're snagged you stand some chance of getting your 10-15 lure back!

The heavy braid also helps stop over runs on your baitcaster, any "birdsnests" you do get can be easily unpicked.

I started using titanium traces (very hard to kink and so lasts much much longer) but to be honest I only see a use for them in the lighter lure setups. Normal 60lb 49 strand wire is pretty tough!!!

If you fly fish for pike you can use a 40lb section of mono and change over to a new section after catching a fish.

However, this pike was caught on my ultra light rod without a wire trace and just an 10inch length of 15lb mono for a bite leader.

Cheers mate, thought you'd be using wire.

When we are bottom fishing, we use mono traces around the 25 to 50lb mark.
When trolling we use 100lb wire trace, due to the fact the surface fish fight harder and have bigger teeth.

In the places I go, I can usually get at least a couple like that per year. We're limited to 5 King Salmon per year, per resident. Down on the Kenai Peninsula, in the Kenai River, they're are much bigger ones caught. The record of 97 lbs 4 oz was caught in the Kenai River 20 years ago this month. I'm just trying to fill the freezer, so I usually don't head down there to fight all the crowds. I'm happy with fish like this to freeze, can, or smoke.:D

New Zealand, I've always wanted to visit there, I hear it's beautiful. Didn't they film Lord of The Rings there?

Heh, you'd only need 5 a year when they're that size! :D
Good effort man!

Yorkshire Boy, we've got a semi-problem with Pike here, wanna come up and kill a few? They are an invasive species not indigenous to Alaska, so have done some damage to trout, grayling, and arctic char in many of the lakes. No bag limit, they tell us to catch as many as we want. Haven't got into pike fishing yet, I love the Salmon and Halibut, better eating. But, I know a lot of guys that kill 'em in the winter ice fishing.

Cool, I'll check it out.

....and yup, the fish fillets add up real quick at that size. Of course that doesn't include all the reds(salmon) you can catch dipnetting. This place is pretty much the greatest salmon fishery on earth, and if you're a resident, it makes it easy to can or freeze as much as you need for year round use.
