What fish is this?

Postby eddyt » Fri Mar 25, 2016 6:30 pm

Hi
I caught a few of these guys today at stony point. A guy told me they are called squires but google tells me that's just a pinky. Pretty sure its not a pinky though. Anyone know what this is?

They were all about 10cmish, caught on the bottom on chicken with small hooks (all released)
