Not Surprised

Sun, 2012-05-06 22:39

I was beach fishing at Guilderton a couple of years ago when I spotted a school of fish, after several casts, I hooked one using a small red head Kokoda slice. When I got it in it was hooked in the mouth. One of the locals muttered "I bet you cant do that again" so I caught another with the next cast. He wandered off shaking his head !!

Pilch

Thats a pilch or by its other name a yellow eyed mullet, very different from mullet that are weed eaters.

Pilch also rarely take lures, mostly caught on maggots or small bits of prawn

Book

Suggest you have a good look in a fish id book, you will find it listed as a yellow eyed mullet, sea mullet don't have yellow eyes. or a thin head for their size.

Yellow eye are browner in colour and more slender IMO. The fact that it took a lure would suggest it is one tho hmm
