Question

My son caught this 42cm fish in Cowan Creek (Hawkesbury).  Its been suggested to me that its a baby Jew fish?

I did put it back but would like to confirm what it is in case there is a next time.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks all - Apologies for the quality of the photos, my wife took them with her mobile phone.

It's not the quality of the photos, it's just that they are at an angle or covered by a towel, but that said, it certainly looks like a Jewfish, called a "soapy"  when small.

Pick up a measure sticker from fisheries or most tackle stores, these have all the common species, with size and bag limits for NSW.  And yes totally agree with the comments, soapy, undersized jewfish, mullaway.
