Every time we go to Yamba when the blackfish and mullet are running the fish shop attached to the Fishermans Co-Op has a special on for local fish and chips at $5 and you get to choose between mullet and blackfish.

I can live on both of them but generally get the blackfish as they give you two pieces. I find them deep fried in the batter to be fantastic.

I haven't actually caught one for years. The last time was at Iluka and caught one that was about 6 inches long. Grin

When the fish are on in the Swansea channel it is standing room only.

A bit like tailor fishermen on Fraser Island I expect.  Must admit though I wouldn't mind another trip up there around September when the tailor are running.

Fresh caught and smoked tailor are extremely nice eating.

Bit like some Camp Oven collectors at a clearing sale. Grin Grin

We had a COG up there in August 2009 so yep, it is certainly worth looking at.  Any other interest from people.  Mind you I am getting a bit beyond camping on the ground so maybe have to rent a big house up there depending on numbers.
