Big Clarrie!

Recommended Posts

The bait is...er, was 10" long and Big Clarrie just wanted a taste! He is an estuary cod, locally called a goldspot.

Good grief ! I would guess Epinephelus tauvina. That is a good shot showing the angular operculum in post #3

I like the reflection of the Spaniard showing by the round rock. That led me to realize the mackerel is hanging in mid-air (you can see the ripples made by drops of water coming off) In fact the more I look at the pic the more I like it !

 

Just had another look - is that a remora beside it in post #4 ?

Correct.

No, mate, it's a wave reflection.
