Mingenew fishing

 Caught this little tacker in coalstream national Park by hand. What a cutie. Was a bastard to fillet.  Any ideas what it is?

 Growing up in Carnarvon we used to get drainage ditches full of tadpoles and shield shrimp after a good rain event. Ditches that were dry 99% of the year.
