Saltwater Catfish (Cobbler/Catfish)

Question

Found this (rather decomposed) catfish in Burrill Lake, South Coast. I think it must be an "Estuary Cobbler" of the Plotosidae family. But it's not 'mottled brown' but more a uniform grey. 62cm long, next to my phone case. Any ideas?

Hard to say because of the state of decomposition, but my guess would also be Estuary Cobbler.

I believe they loose their colour  after they've been dead awhile.
