Blue morwong

Nice work Peter – an excellent morwong for dinner!

The Blue Morwong is a reef dweller and is a very wary fish. It will inspect a bait thoroughly before striking. This is why the hooks have to be completely covered with bait, but ensure that the point is not snagged with a hard piece of flesh.This fish has a small hard mouth and likes to suck at a bait.

Most Morwong reach weights of at least 1.2kg and some occasionally grow much larger. The Blue Morwong or Queen Snapper is definitely a top-quality eating fish, and is actively sought by many southern anglers.

Most Blue Morwong are caught from boats. Using tackle such as 10-15kg breaking strain line and a 3/0 – 6/0 is ideal for catching Morwong off South Australian waters.

We like morwong, wrapped up in foil with your favorite spices, cooked in the oven for about 30 minutes at 190 C.
