Also picked up a couple cobbler. Wasn't sure how to clean them properly so filleted one and massacred it


I usually drive a nail through the head onto a post.

Make a cut just through the skin right the way around just below the gills.

Then using a pair of pliers grab the skin and simply pull it off.

Then you can fillet as a normal fish or cook whole without the skin on.

Very nice looking marron as well.

Interesting read Tad. Not sure exactly where u are but looks like great murray cod fishing areas. Korinne and I have spent a weekend yabbie fishing using baited traps and string lines, and we ended up with around 30 yabbies which we took home and boiled up. Haven't bothered since, after peeling them and only having enough meat for a couple of sandwiches.  They were tasty though.
 

Its not burnt. Just really well done.

I'm in SW WA so no murray cod over here. I actually had a laugh today while making a marron sandwich at lunch, thinking back to when I lived in Leinster and the amount of effort I had to go to to get a yabby sandwich. I used one marron tail to make a sandwich and it was loaded on pretty heavy.
Just got home from my last marroning session this year. Season closes tomorrow at lunchtime and unfortunately I got bugger all tonight

I have heard of them trying to get cod over here but I don't think I've heard of any being caught. There was apparently one massive one caught in a lake in the city somewhere a couple of years ago. Not sure how much truth is in that rumour
