Nice snap Pekka - when is flat fish season and got any tips on finding them ?!

(Need to get some fresh fish - freezer is almost out :( )

Thanks, I tried to get my monster bass picture from my phone but the link didnt work, but hey.. it shall stay as a story and legend to people who have heard of it... :)
I love the taste of smoked fish, so I smoke quite big portion of my fish. I also like BBQ fish..
About the flatfish season...well I think it is on quite soon after christmas all the way to some weeks after Easter.. I think.. I have to check by getting some when I get back to UK. And about finding them.. well find a reef, any reef and swim about four feet off the bottom, scanning the edges of the reef. (specially the sand) when you see a red-spotted-soon-to-be-fillet'o-fish swim to it and stab your spear through.. I dont shoot them at all.. would ruin my sharp spear..:) just make sure after you have stabbed the fish to put your hand on the other side and push the fish completely into the spear.. easy like picking berries. :cool
Aydin, the bass season in UK is over I think.. I have not been in water lately.. it is in summer time when the bass are around UK..Zzz hopefully some stray ones will come my way soon though.

Safe diving to you all

The foto is for real guys. Shows a possible 8-9kg bass really fat and as long as an omer millenium fin. Way to go Pekka.
Thanks Ntrik...I knew I could count on you to support my story.. and hope to see you soon after the 5th... when I get back and who knows we go looking for those monsters..
