Never heard of a salmon trout. Are there any in your pics, they look like what you call an aussie salmon. apart from the flathead.

Small Australian salmon have have always been known as salmon trout at least untill they get to around 1-1.5kg

Pillies??? this is a WA site and here where most of them are caught they are known as mulies ---not the mullies or pillies they call them over there.
