Mulloway / Jew fish are without a doubt one of, if not the most sort after fish by speros on the nsw east coast of Australia. Secrecy surrounds these fish from the locations they are caught to the time of day and depths of water that they are found. Without doubt my favourite fish to chase and land.
The Mulloway can be recognised by its silvery to bronze-green colouration, moderately elongated body, caudal fin shape and the series of pearly white spots along the lateral line. The caudal fin varies from pointed in juveniles to concave dorsally in adults. Size range, It grows to 2 m in length.
