I was extremely ill on this fishing trip - just released from hospital
After catching this 13 kgs (28.6 lbs) reef fish off Cairns, I was vomiting like never before. I should not have gone.

So glad you survived! Did you get well enough soon to eat that tasty looking fish?

I love to fish, but it isn't much fun when sick. Beautiful fish. Hope you feel lots better.

This crayfish was caught by a Torres Strait Islander (Aborigine from TI) working as a cray diver.
There’s no way I would be going diving.

Ridge walker asked if the Red Emperor reef fish was nice to eat.
Let’s say you’d kill for it!
Reef fish cone in two tastes - delicious and more delicious.
You should all plan a Great Barrier Reef fishing trip at least once in your life,

Yes a painted cray.
One thing about living in the far north east of Australia is the quality of the fish.

Hello! I noticed your E Type in your avatar. What year is it? I have a '69 that looks identical, minus the wire wheels. My car has the steel rims, as I understand it,a more expensive option, but I like the wire wheel much better!
