I cant understand how so many people can see so much detail and assume so much from 1 line and 1 photo.

The photo looks like its from a pier, fish is blury(ish) in the photo...makes me think its still alive and went back. Where did he say he killed it?

The dorsal fin has flattened which is usually a good indicator of a dead or nearly dead fish.


But it looks like its pectoral fin is blurred because its flapping?

Fish was well alive just caught and quick snap with phone but was dark and photpgrapher not that good.

Was kept as not in the noxious list and thought had caught before. Was impossible to find on fisheries site.

Thanks for the help.

For the doubters just taking a few fish that we could get. Many just sized flatheads returned safely.
