Heading home tonight, no fishing, had housework to do. Get a call from Matt, low on fuel so I said.. ok I will grab you some 2 stroke and bring it out. Can’t stop someone fishing. I get to the marina and Chewy is cruising past, half full of water and hooks a trevally. He offers to help and we go toss some fuel to Matt. He had a nice coral trout on board but won’t trade it for the fuel. what happened to island barter?? I give him the fuel and we have a quick troll. Of course we took our rods and my qantas lures . 5 fish on 4 drops and I go home to see if I’m in trouble. Thanks for the help chewy and I think you got your reward. ... See MoreSee Less
Speaking of fish bones, can anyone remind me which fish has a bone that looks like Jesus on the cross?
Looks like some kind of sting ray barb if it's 20cms.....
Possibly a Chimaerid spine. They look like that and can be that large. The bone at the bottom is the basal bone that forms a base for the spine. In New Zealand the dorsal spine of the Chimaerid elephant fish is sometimes found on beaches.
Definately a bone. Maybe from a fish, but I'm not sure 🤔😂
I'm leaning towards a catfish fin spine. They certainly have serrations as in the pic, but can't find any reference to stonefish having serrations.
Looks like a fun or dorsal bone?
Pretty sure its from a stone fish seen them before years ago around alma bay
