Went for a quick session after I drop the kids off to school. 1.5hr before and after high tide. 

Fished unweight. Drifted with school prawns. 

2 big bream which went 40+ and 1 that cut me off the rock edge while I was took a phone call

Great day to be out.

This must be the UK I'm guessing. I *think* saltwater bream are very similar to if not the same as scup or porgy in the states, but not sure.

Whenever we're allowed to visit our daughter again in the UK, I'm going to revisit this thread...she's over near the east coast, with the closest saltwater location being the Great Yarmouth area

 I think Albacized is right - that fish at the bottom looks like a Silver Trevally to me.

May be, but down under usually have bream all year round. The picture are mostly silver bream, but black bream also can be catch using school prawn.

Same family but the breams in Europe aren’t as bony and much cleaner in flavor. I love them both.

Only pan fried them - how do they do on the grill?


if you coat the skin with coarse salt the whole fish won’t stick. Super hot very clean grill and let it cook for a while before flipping once to finish it up.

 

Most of the salt will fall off while cooking.
