Hee Hee Hipp well picked up. . It is indeed a Southern Tiphead, a very distant relative of the Austrailian Flathead. Yes it does kinda look like a kahawai, in fact it fights just like a Kahawai, tastes just like a kahawai . In fact when you catch one, you would swear its a kahawai. But no its a Southern Tiphead from now on.
