Fish ID - emperor in Perth

Hi Guys

 

What are your thoughts on this one? Caught in Perth today, 2 in a row. Bit nervous to bring it back in as couldn't be sure.

 

Is it baby spangled, blue line or is it a blue spotted?

If blue spotted it would have been size (29cm).

 

Thanks

Hey Randall,

I see you took my advise and changed your avatar to show off that monster mackie !

And as mentioned above, a blue lined emperor also called black snapper or grass snapper (grassy) excellent eating.
