Fish Id please

 Hi guys caught this fish on Sunday night between Garden and Carnac Island while chasing snapper was released straight after photo. No snapper again got the usual run right on sunset but no hook up, becoming a repetitive occurance. Plenty of squid attacking my baits brought home afew could have taken heaps.

Those buggers are bloody good at taking a set bait and swimming into the nearest ledge or cave!
