    Re: queenies are the best

    there must be more than one species,
    ive always wondered what the smaller ones we see around the SE are..
    looking at the top two sets of pics it looks like there different fish,
    the queeny up the top isnt all that much bigger than the ones below but looks completely different...any ideas?

    I reckon you are right Yella.
    It states in Grant's Guide that the Slender Leatherskin is a smaller specie of Queenie to 500mm. It states that they have black tipped dorsal and caudal fins.
    Have a look at Nuggs queenie, it has black tips on the dorsal.
    It is definitely different to the big queenie in the bottom pic.
    There's one catch, and that is it states that the Slender Queenie ranges from Central Q coast to PNG. Mind you, this edition of Grants is 26 years old.

    I read a news article that state that fish are moving south at a rate of 50k's per decade.
    I reckon there are definitely n2 different species.

    Cheers Jeff.

    Caught this one just before Xmas between Townsville Harbour and Maggie Island.
    Put up one hell of a fight, tail danced, jumps and head shakes, 15 mins later in the boat. Mind you the Rapala lure looks like it has been hit by a chainsaw...

    Oh to be spoilt with this type of fishing up here in NQ...
