Lovely looking specimens there. Very impressive!

What is the stripy fish in the second pic. Some type of bream?

Looks like a bream, but I think it is a lighter coloured Tautog, they are a member of the Wrasse family and put up a good fight.

They are called sheepshead I’m not if it is a type of breem. They are very strong and make a delicious meal.

Some nice fish there. It’s good to see that the art of holding them up close to the camera trick is alive and well over there. 

Out with the tape measure again Jon, first checking my km's across Oz and now checking the size of anglers fingers 😉

Just looked them up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archosargus_probatocephalus

They seem very similar to our black bream, but bigger! Lots of teeth and hard mouths and best taken on small hooks. Also good eating. 👍
