New to fishing, what have I caught?

Hi guys, I'm new to fishing and have only caught snapper, herring and bream so far. I was fishing at Coogee Beach today and caught the fish in the picture that will hopefully appear in this post. Is anybody please able to tell me what it is?

 

Thanks

 They're not too bad to eat, but as Hutch says we keep em as Dhuie and cray bait.

Ah cool, thanks guys. Knowing what to google, it seems to specifically be a Western Butterfish (obviously the kind that wears Bintang singlets and swims up to bali every few months).
