Beaut fish, perfect size for the plate.

Was starting to wonder if anyone was fishing ... might have to put up a link to Beyond Blue if the monsoon doesn't form up.

They vary a fair bit in colour depending on depth, temperature, and mood I think.

I know they can rapidly change colours when hunting and will vary depending on what structure they live. I'll call the first one a 'Barcheek' and this one the 'Common' Coral Trout.

I reckon they might both be barcheeks. Second one just has the measles.

Could be wrong tho. Both will be tasty.

Nice catch.
What's the best bait/lure/jig for trout?

You can't beat fresh redfish or flag caught in the same area

Yes, they seem to like those fresh fish flesh baits.

Now say it faster .... fresh fish flesh

And faster .... fresh fish flesh

(Whale Oil Beef Hooked ... Fresh Fish Flesh = FFF, who'da thunk)

Yep.

Local squid first then fff and make em big pieces on the hook.

I'm not a jig man yet... so can't really comment only that I've heard to use big ones.
