moore river today

Hit moore river this morning at 530. Bit of weed but very fishable. Nailed a 40cm tailor second cast with the new beach outfit. 12ft sensor surf/saltist 4500H. Saw a couple of nice ones caught but went quiet within an hour of getting there. Couple of hours later i nailed what i think is a little bronzie, it went airbourne, jumped and summersaulted like a barra..It put up a great little fight and released back after a quick pic (much to the horror of a family frolicking in the surf 20 mtrs away) Can anyone confirm its a bronzie ?
