Black Fish

These fairly elusive fish certainly attract the keen fishermen and one big bonus is that you don't need to carry around stinky bait. On the flipside ya gotta get your ass out in places like this, noting the abundance of 'cabbage' on the rock, which the blackfish or luderick feed on.

It was just before dawn when this bunch of dudes passed me on the rock shelf, politely saying hello 🙂 one bloke was wearing shorts and a hoodie which I thought was nuts, even I was not wearing shorts ! whilst only 7 or 8 degrees the wind chill was crazy….

anywho's… after getting bored of taking pictures of the sea I wandered over to see how they were going, sure enough they had already nailed a couple of really nice sized fish and one bloke nearly got washed away so with the cool clouds hanging around I thought why not..
