So which is it the barber perch? We got told by a local it was a sergeant baker perhaps it's just another name ie: callop yellowbelly..

Either way there cool looking fish

I've always referred to the top fish as a 'butchers d***'.

That's what my grandfather always called em, don't know why, but it's always stuck haha.

Pain in the ass they are though, no good to eat
