Chinaman
« on: Fri 7 Jun 15:42 2019 »
While waiting for the tide at one of my snapper spots last evening I was talking with a bloke that fished it last week for a nice fish, he also showed me a photo of a decent adult Chinaman one of apparently a double hook up in the passage.
I know little of them except they are no take,I wouldn't have expected to run across them here.
Anyone else seeing them in there catch?

    I have caught few them in area of the bay fishing the  rous channel & around peel island but as you know reason why they are no take because of the ciguatera  poisoning similar get from eatening bigger Spanish mackerel becuase when they eat the smaller reef fish in which they feed on the Dinoflagellates like marine  plankton / plant 

    But the strange thing is when was working in Western Australia  couple years caught few chairman fish & where allowed to eat them apperanlty they don't get the Ciguatera poisoning  honestly pretty good eating fish   photo attached one from WA
