It was so much fun catching our own salmon and getting it cooked on site and eating it within 20 mins of catch, it was the yummiest smoked salmon ever!

We had fun and caught two salmon which weighed 3.4kg together. We asked for one raw in fillets. The other we asked for smoked which we were told would take twenty minutes. Actually took 50 minutes which made us late for our dinner booking.

Hi Joy, that's $22.00 per kilo of life weight. Fish cleaning service included hot smoking from $10.00. Fish are between 1 and 2 kilo's at the moment.
