North straddie
« on: Thu 14 Nov 20:03 2019 »
Just back from another week in paradise.
Wind was variable from every direction and sweep was bad around the moon.
Canít complain however as itís still not working!
Although I struggled to find the fish, I still had 2 ok nights.
Met a few great people on the beach fishos while there that made the trip even better.

    Nice job Cus both with the fish and the filleting. Not enough meat left for the cat on those frames and left the rib cage.

    Thanks Burger, i actually cut the belly flaps off and salt them down for baits.
    I also take out the roe and cook them up, not for everyone but itís ok.

    Good catch Cus. Thats some serious Tailor
     How do you prep and cook the Roe? I have never tried it.
    What do you usually catch on the salted down Belly Flaps?

    @ Fishy mick, I don't know about Cus but I just use plain flour and shallow fry in oil , turning over soon as one side cooked, bit of salt and pepper.

    Thanks Bondy
    How long does it take to cook or how can you tell when theyre cooked. I would think it would only take about a minute each side, or do you just keep rolling them like a sausage for x amount of time,would that be right? Do you eat them hot or do you have to wait for them to cool? I want to try this one day.

    Mick,

    Apologies for the delay in reply.

    Not long to cook, just couple of minutes to cook tailor roe. No need to keep rolling them like a sausage as the heat will go through. Best eaten whilst the roe is hot / warm. its different to caviar from a sturgeon fish where they can be eaten cold.

    I've heard of some people smoking tailor roe, don't know how that goes. never smoked roe , only fillets.

    I appreciate the reply.
    Must try this one day. I suppose it would be the same for mullet or any other fish.

    Fishy Mick,
    No probs, when the mullet has been at sea for awhile coming out of the estuaries and rivers, they take on a better taste.
    Roe from mullet that's been at sea for awhile tastes better than one caught from the local river.

    It's not everyone's cup of tea, I come from a fishing family background, eaten mullet when I was a kid, still do.

    Many years ago sea mullet was sold in Fisherman's Cooperatives for 25 cents a Kg. Now it's hefty due to its' popularity, not much so with Aussies but with other nationalities.
