Caught these in moreton bay......any ideas??

#1 Post by GlassedOff » Sun May 17, 2015 7:29 pm

Firstly there was this which i assumed was a luderick, dark black eyes and hard scales almost felt like it was armoured

And then there was this little guy i noticed floating in the surface film, netted him off the top with my rod tip, had a little flat beak kinda like a sawfish without the spikes around it and a kind of sectioned and prehistoric looking body which was flattie shaped but felt hard, was a weird little critter

Any ideas??

Kayak fishing isn't a sport. It's much more serious than that.

I'm going to have a stab in the dark and say it's either from the Surgeonfish or Triggerfish families but definitely not a Luderick Chris as by that earlier photo I sent you.

My bet would be...
Pic 1= something from sergeant major/damselfish family
pic 2= dragonet of some sort
PBs
I caught a cobia which could eat the rest except for the mackerel which could also probably eat a lot of the things

Yep agree with you there...A long tailed dragonfish or sea moths.

Just as chris said the second is a sea moth family..
Its called a Pegasidae they can grow upto 18cm.

My aunty gave me a great book of every known species in moreton bay that has been found including plants, shells..etc its pretty sweet
