When you’re fighting a fish and you stop to rest, so does the fish – and that can lengthen the fight time.
If you keep working hard you’ll keep the fight time short. There are so many options for preparing SBT. It’s such a delicacy, I love it. My husband is allergic to other fish but SBT is a fish we can share at the table.
Short fight times mean your SBT is in good condition if you want to release it. If you’re keeping it, the meat won’t degrade due to over-heating. That’s really important when catching SBT in the warmer waters off NSW!
