Pelagic fish Grader

Bat is hooked to a big mackerel while Paul gives him a massage. All guides are mental.The Editorial Gomes and yours truly were coming back from Karumba in his trusty 20 year old Toyota Sahara (468, 000 Ks), that runs a lot better than he does, when he asked “How long has it been since you’ve been to Seisia ??”.
I answered “Years mate. But tell me why do you ask pilgrim ??”. He came back with “I’m running a drive trip up and back to the tip for the bigger advertisers in Cape Yorker and I thought you might like to come along”.

Before I go any further I must congratulate Anthony on the Cape Yorker. It’s a top shelf magazine so do yourself a favour and buy a copy. They’ll be a collectors item in the future and the new edition promises to be even bigger and brighter than the current model.
Naturally I leapt at the chance to fly to, and drive back from the tip of Australia but quickly asked the lad was there any chance to have a fish up there. He grinned and told me he had arranged for “Bat” to take Paul Donald and I out for an afternoon.
Now a fishing guide called “Bat” could be a worry, but I held my tongue and thought “this’ll be different”.
bat10 ul and I flew to Bamaga, and trust me, that airfare one way was more than a return flight to Sydney. Now that there is an alternative airline it’ll be interesting to see what happens.

Anthony picked us up at Bamaga around 5 p.m. and we met the other four at Seisia Holiday Village. Now I have never driven to the tip of Australia and I was looking forward to the adventure. There were seven of us with the TJM boys in that classy red Landcruiser that has more accessories than a King Cross prostitute, the Polycraft boys in their Holden Rodeo and we three in the old Sahara.
There were two bush trailers, three plastic boats, and enough recovery gear to outfit the Dacca Rally.
I could not believe how Seisia had changed and how the camping ground had matured. We had a self contained unit and it was excellent.Bat and his trusty 6 metre Fisher boat that is anchored at Punsand Bay. Club and the island band was pretty bloody good.
I caught up with an old mate there, Gary Wright — G. Wright is the oldest fishing guide in Australia (both in years and experience) and his knowledge of that area and its history is incredible. Write a book Gary before you check out and it’s all lost.
We shopped for the drive home the next morning then headed out to Punsand Bay where “Bat” lives right on the water. If he were any closer to it he’d have mullet in the lounge and mackerel in the bathroom.
And so without fanfare I met “Bat”. How to describe “Bat” in words that I won’t get sued for, or beaten to death?? One word describes this man——different. While he has dreadlocks, and teeth that would terrify a dentist, he’s university educated.
Tall and wiry as a barracuda he has chosen to follow the beat of a different drum, and who can blame him there??
I’m not sure what “Bat” thought of Paul and I (probably a pair of old farts), but I laughed when Anthony said “Be an easy afternoon with this pair Bat”, and he replied “Get real Gomes. Now I’ve got a fishing writer I’ve been reading since I was a small kid and a bloody charter boat skipper. I’ve never been so uptight in my life”.

It's an issue with most freshwater fish if you

Ocean fish...even predatory FW fish eat other stuff that bottom feeds and they pick up that flavor, while pelagic predatory fish like tuna eat other smaller fish and crustaceans that feed on krill and plankton.
Part of the issue with tilapia is that unlike other fish they tolerate extreme conditions of poor water quality...they are so tough they can live in fresh OR saltwater and anything in between...so it's easier for people who don't care about water quality to actually get them to market, where other fish would just die from neglect....but when raised properly they are pretty mild and aren't any muddier tasting than other FW fish that live in still waters.
