Fish ID (Geelong Waterfront)

Post by Fourcolorhero » Thu Nov 01, 2018 11:23 am

Hey guys,

Fairly new to fishing and managed to catch this fella on my first cast this morning. Tried googling and checking around but can't for the life of me ID it for certain. Any ideas?

Thanks :)

Yeah, I agree it's a grass whiting. Its physique resembles that of a King George Whiting, so you can tell apparently.
