Sunny Coast Weekender

19 09 2010

Hey Everyone,
I just returned from a two day trip to the Sunshine Coast. We dove both days and cooked up our catch at the hostels. I was able to go for a dive with some talented aussie spearos that taught me a lot about hunting these waters. We went to some offshore reefs that were virtually untouched: tons of fish, best visibility I’ve ever seen, and every hole that should have a lobster in it did. Here are some of the photos:

Coral Trout and Estuary Cod

The visiblility was ridiculous, probably 30+ meters

The day's catch: 2 coral trout, 1 estuary cod, 2 pearly perch, 1 snapper, 1 bream, 1 blue groper, and a boat limit of lobster,

When we returned to Brissy, my housemate Shane and I cooked up a feast for our host family. We cooked coral trout on the barbie: stuffed with bell peppers and onions and covered with garlic, ginger and chili sauce. On the side, painted lobster in butter, rice, and corn.

Coral Trout, its what's for dinner
