Fish ID help

 Hello,

The answer is probably obvious but its got me stumped.  I caught this bugger today in a channel inshore in Carnarvon, i thought at the time it was a bream but when i got back home I'm starting to question what it is. I'm starting to think juvenile mulloway but i'm just not sure, any help would be appreciated

Download the recfishwest phone app, has a great fish ID system with bag limits, minium size and how good the eating is

Makes it easy to ID a fish before necking it and taking it home 

I'd definitely say thats a javelin fish,
