Got me stumped


Was sent this photo to identify, but it has me stumped.

Apparently caught by a diver off Mindarie.

Looks like a cross between a Breaksea Cod and a Coral Trout.

Any clues out there?

Just a plain lovely coral trout

The older you get the more you realize that no one has a f++king clue what they're doing.

Everyone's just winging it.
