Not a spectacular fish. A 38cm Grunter or Spotted Javalinfish.
But very unusual, where I caught it.
Caught just North of Coffs Harbour in NSW at a place called Red Rock.

Funny that....this was at Jewfish point!
Should be called Mangrove Jack after dark, point.
My old man lives in the area, biggest flathead I have ever seen was near this spot.

Most of the Jewies are caught off the Beach on the Southern side of the 'Red Rock', but you do get the occasional one that ventures up the creek...

I have seen some very nice Flathead caught there as well as some big Mangrove Jacks...
Same in Moonee Creek as well...

Mrs Wolf keeps reminding Me 'Who caught the Biggest Flatty' at Red Rock... argh smile

If you can't convince them, confuse them

No, but I will soon. Sounds delicious. Crushed cornflakes are good but I never thought of crushed potato chips, so many flavors to try too. Mmmmmmmm!

Looks a bit different to the grunter / javelin fish we get in the north.did it "croak" looks more like a bream in body shape, but has the right spots and small head of a grunter.

Yeah def a Javelin Grunter, Yellowfin Bream have a much more rounded head and the stepped dorsal fin is a give away.

Either way, I'm tonguing for a feed of fresh saltwater fish! I miss spending almost every weekend out on the boat at SWR.

I have caught Jack's as far south as Korogoro Ck at Hat Head, after a few runs, you soon realise they are not lazy lizards.
