Just went to eshed to get myself some bait for a stint upnorth.

Lots of choppa tailor around, through back all undersized but kept 1 legal one.

When i got home , i was taking the fish out the esky when i noticed this bloody wierd bug attached to the side of the tailors head!

Its legs have a serated *spelling* edges to hold it to the fish and big nippers!

There was one more "bug" attached to another fish in my esky!

My guess is that they came from inside the tailors mouth.
Anyone know much about them? They look nasty!
