getting the bottom line final answer from a bunch of blokes that use false names and put smiley faces at the end of paragraphs is not the best place in the world to get the information you seek.

 def a gold spot. have caught several over the time. nothing fantastic on the tooth but it is edible. just add a few spices to it and it  can taste reasonable. from memory they have slightly darker flesh

Thanks folks for your help. We will venture out again soon although my hip didn't enjoy all that boating last weekend. We did throw all the fish back mainly because we weren't sure what species they were. Might have to do some reading up on fish types lol.

As they say, after Monday, when you're hooked....!
