    We call them Trumpeters. Never knew they were a type of Grunter. Interesting to know.

    We called them trumpeters up north. Can give a nasty sting. They were a pain when using a castnet as they would school up and fill the net.

    was watching Robson Green's fishing show for a bit last night , he was in an estuary in South Africa.
    He caught one of these crescent grunter, a small tarwhine and also what we would call a 'bar tailed' flathead, but they gave them all different names to us. Just thought that was a bit interesting ..

    Grows to 25cm..never saw one that size. Usually around 5 to 7.5 here on Cap Coast. Given their fight, they would out perform a bream at 25 cm. Prickey little buggers.
