Leatherjacket?

Short CR!
There were very little bites, a single live prawn lasted 3 hours and multiple casts without dying :confused:
Only had some small catch.

I've never seen this fish before, is it another specie of leatherjacket?

Oh my, I haven't seen such a triggerfish in our waters before. I think it's a Rough Triggerfish (Canthidermis maculatus), you can see more of the pictures here. Do you mind if I use your picture for HLF's fish library?

It's quite a catch, I would be very excited to catch that triggerfish. :D

Sure :) it was just swimming around at the surface of the water and took a small piece of cut prawn when I lowered it down beside it.
