Cheers
Mike

Caught off the beach at Golden Bay Mako...it was slimy like a trumpeter and had the sharp spiky bit behind the gills like a trumpeter, but the tail and markings are a little different.

Sea trumpeter, thanks Carolyn!

If we can hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate.
