    It’s a spotted grunter not a yellowfin bream and it looks under 40cm so it’s possibly not of legal size!…. Not to be a spoilsport but some of these catch and kill fishing comps have a lot to answer for especially when they’re handing out prizes for misidentified and potentially undersized fish…
