[[Wayne, that mud crab looks quite a bit like our Maryland Blue!]]

That's interesting June, how big do they grow, the average size for these is about 1 1/2kg and the biggest I've seen is 4.2kg and 240mm [9 1/2"] across the shell. They must be 150mm [6"] across the shell before we can keep them and we are not allowed to take females, we also have a limit of 10 crabs per person per trip.

They are fun to catch but you have to be very careful with the claws, they can snip your finger off.

I know you are a fan of Barramundi but those King Salmon live alongside the Barra and are so much nicer to eat, they also grow to about 100lbs.
Unlike your Salmon they have very white flesh

My favorite fish? I have to change from my previous answer. My favorite fish is the giant one pulling wildly against me as I struggle to land him. Ever hook inot a king salmon with only eight lb. test line and a light rod? It's quite a fight. If you try and horse him in, he'll snap either you line or your rod. I can just hear that reel screem as the line sppols off against the drag. Oh yehhhhh. Took me ten minutes to land that fish.

My new favorite fish to prepare at HOME is (fresh) sardine, just because it's quick, crispy, and impossibly delicious.


Otherwise it's probably black cod, generally as misoyaki. I think I was hawaiian in a past life, even though I've never been there.

Raw salmon works too, especially salmon belly.

I love Amber Jack, I try to fish for them every month. Blackened, fried, smoked, it does't matter. Another has to be swordfish!

If it breaths water it's mine, except anchovies - no can do.
