Fish ID

 Caught north of Lancelin in 350+ metres. 

 

Can people please confirm ID. . Pretty sure we know what it was. 

 

Cheers

 Harpuka...

 

I was just used to the smaller versions with bottom jaw more protruding and pointier and greyer colour.

Did you weigh it?

Looks to be a reasonable size for a metro / metro north fish.
