I stand corrected Rick, you are right and the ones I have seen would be those as well.

Thanks mate.

I'll go and have a hard look in the mirror and give myself a uppercut.

a couple of years back when we were still pro fishing  we were sending them to Sydney markets  we averaged $15.00 kilo ...they sell well ive eaten one and found it nice  tight white flesh without many bones...on some of the reefs we used to fish up north there are schools of thousands of them  just like sweep hangin midwater..rick
