Sooty Grunter
« on: Sat 14 Apr 10:51 2018 »
River was up a bit and pretty grotty and things were looking sad with only one fish for 5 hours, had a move 20 odd k's to some new territory and paddled till I found them, shame I ran out of daylight with still so much water still to explore but certainly worth the effort in the end.
Cheers.

Getting bored of the yellas? You must have spent a few hours in the car to find these? I am guessing North of Rocky?

    I'd say you're thinking of Barred Grunter or Black Banded Grunter Snap, Northern species introduced to SEQ for some reason.
    You're about 5 hrs to far Nth Jeremy ;)

    I'd say I am thinking of Sooty Grunter....

    From Wikipedia "The sooty grunter (Hephaestus fuliginosus), also known by the name black bream, is a species of fish which inhabits coastal and inland freshwater creeks and rivers of northern Australia: from the upper Burdekin River in Queensland to the Daly River in the Northern Territory." Burdekin River is Townsville.

    What am I missing?

    Sooty grunter are now established in rivers running into Hervey Bay which is a real worry on their impact on endangered freshwater species.
