I mainly fish anywhere along the red line. The drop off from the reef (structure). The green areas have also produced good fish.

Yep flounder has a tail, sole doesn't, that's how I think it goes. Well someone will correct me if I am wrong. just remember they both go well with a slice of lemon.

NSW fisheries say you are absolutely correct. They also say Sole have a smaller mouth than Flounder.
https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/fish ... -list/sole

However, its not quite that easy. Photos of Sole on Fishes of Australia indicate some species of Sole do have a tail. The difference seems to be that the tail of a Sole is less distinct.

Then there are some species of Flounder that don't have big tails.
