Fish ID

Caught at frustrations at Kalbarri. Bottom fish is some sort of Wirrah I think but not too sure on either.

moses perch im guessing

Mon, 2009-03-16 19:33

moses perch or black spotted pearch im guessing altho very faint in the pic the dark spot on the lateral line gives it away. they look very simmilar to a fingermark bream altho i recon you would hav to be very lucky to land one so far south, they still taste great tho.

cheers
