I forgot to mention I went to Cape Schank on saturday and it was a fun day. We were very lucky as there was no swell and so it was fairly safe fishing. Though I am told it can get pretty hairy when the seas are bigger. We caught parrot fish. leatherjackets and sea sweep. plus i also caught the following fish but I don't know what it is.

maybe someone can help me identify this fish:

Hi Glen, I'm fairly certain that it's a Scalyfin:

Despite their small size, they are an aggressive fish, and very territorial. I've been bitten and chased by quite a few scalyfins while SCUBA diving :firefighter:

hi jaz, that "Parma victoriae" must be the one!

though the one i caught was not so blue but i had a search on the net and found other pics more on the brown side so must be the same species.

i noticed that the scales came off fairly easily and i presume that is why they call them "scalyfish"!

cheers, glen
