That's a permanent marker eel, ;-) cheers davo
It's an exhilarating feeling catching a fish
But it's an even better feeling releasing them

"Scolecenchelys breviceps" aka shorthead worm eel. Theyre everywhere in port phillip bay and Corio bay and they love squid. Usualy makes a big mess of your rig and twist n twirl like a washing machine. Mistaken for sea snakes sometimes too by many
