Name this fish!

Post by mattrider » Mon Apr 05, 2021 3:09 pm

Hi all. Wondering by if you can help me identify this fish species. Fishing on jan juc surf beach a few days ago. New to Victorian fishing and in my ignorance assumed this was a small snapper! Any ideas appreciated. Photo not great but I’m sure anyone with experience will be able to tell straight away!
