    Looks to be a red scorpian fish ……catch heaps around the foul …..great to eat
    Maori Chief is like a fat headed blue cod , its brown/black with really course scale and covered in weird white and offwhite dots …HUGE head ….
    Catch a lot around Goat Point ….6lb is quite common ……..they seem to sit on the bottom sucking up any burley or fish frames we throw in ….garbage disposal units lol

    Yup we have those big heads off here sometimes we catch em when targeting Moki.they remind me of an aussie “flattie”.me mate swears they are delicious..mind you he did eat an old squid that washed up here once and reckoned it was nice..and he was the first of us here to make a pattie outa junior lampreys..I quite like the adult lamprey though..they wash up in the gravel troughs trying to get back to the lake..The kahawai were full of smelt (the cucumber ones)by the way oodles of them..
