I used the google and it does look similar to a grouper
Damn they can get to a big size.

It would be awesome to catch something that big. Most of the fish i catch are undersized and get thrown back to fight another day

Well tired

If a bunch of prospectors could tell what it was. I wouldn't be putting much faith in the fishing charter captain that was so stumped from the article.

You could be right mate

That fish is huge. You would need a good set of knifes to fillet that one on the bench

Yeah , that's a queensland groper. We used to have one about 300kg living under the houseboat on the pearl farm where I worked. Used to swallow 60kg spanish mackeral frames in one bite. Awesome animals and not at all scared of anything.


Prospecting must be like fishing, the big one keeps getting away!
