Your suspicion is right, RPL that's a cattie. Easy to tell fron the spinous dorsal fin & short rounded adipose fin.

looks like a threadfin catfish Arius armiger one of the most common species of cattie in northern Aust waters. Most end up in crab pots for something really worthwhile. That's what they're best at. :biggrin2:
