    Yes Noel and found up this way in Queensland ..Used to catch heaps of them years gone by in the mouths of Rivers that may have a deep hole . 5-6" in size but lately we have been catching a few just over the 12" mark .
    Not as nice as your normal Whiting in taste and normally throw them back or cur a few slabs for bait but wanted to know the legalaties of these fish as one cant plead ignorance if pulled over .
    I have had Fisheries politely check my bait so one does have to be on their gaurd.
    Anyway a good chat with Fisheries sorted the question out ..
