Fish ID ?

A mate shot this in Carnarvon.

 

Any idea? we have narrowed it down to two species.

Robbo Seabream.
Agree with others above.
Got them in less than 10m before, and more than 70m for that matter.

Not a maori. Not deep enough

Not a maori. Not deep enough in the body.

With a maori the flesh is very fatty and the bones have big calcium deposits. They suck to fillet. The blade gets stuck on the fat and then you have the bones to contend with....

100% robbo. Hands down. I shot one in 15m at dhi before. Not uncommon in shallower waters.

 

Does that bloke even need a wetty?
