Do you use an ice slurry? 

Do you use an ice slurry?  The bug that can make fish mushy does it when the fish is left too warm too long.

Yes but not all was iced on

Yes but not all was iced on capture and some fish on the top got soft on the trip home.
I dunno..All I had was fine. Mine was packed at the bottomWink
I just find up North when its hot a full ice slurry is the only way to make your fish stay perfect. Mackeral particularly turn soft and shit if the flesh gets warm

I've heard that if a fish

I've heard that if a fish turns to mush like that (when others of the same kind don't) that it is caused by a parasite in the flesh.  I could be wrong there, but that's what I've been told.  Makes sense.

Maybe its a parasite? I

Maybe its a parasite?
I still think the best size for trout is around 2kg. Believe it or not, the one pictured above was about 20.

Where abouts

did you get that from Kasey? 20kg's is HUGE man...

New Caledonia Max. Correct

New Caledonia Max. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's an oceanic coral trout - slightly different to the bar-cheeked and spotted ones we usually get in WA. A 9-10kg bar-cheek would be a VERY good size, I think Mark and Nealez got very close to this at Onslow.
