Thats brilliant Kelvin - like you, its usually only one every now and then, although I did surprisingly get 3 in one trip once - but not of the size you got there ! Be great to get them consistently :D

Would you freeze any of that catch? Do you give any to friends or family? Just asking as I am too scared too take more than one at a time. If I knew anyone who liked fish I would keep some for them too but I cant see the point in freezing fish.
Cheers,

Dan.

What type of flattie is that?

I don't think we get that one here (we get a lot of 'mud' ('estuary') flatties).

Thanks guys for the guesswork.

Could they possibly be the Southern Rock Flathead (Platycephalus laevigatus)? They (almost) appear to have the widely-spaced ribbons mentioned in Grants Guide, and a short blocky snout....?
