Was out crabbing the other night, not having a great deal of luck, so wandered into the shallows trying to find them, but ended up finding heaps of cobbler rolling around in the mud instead. Took the crabbing gear back to the car and grabbed my gidgy. Within 10 minutes, I had 3 big cobbler in my bag. Easily could've got my bag limit of 8 within half an hour, but thought I'd better try out the few that I had for eating/freezing quality first. Ended up with 720 grams of fillets, but could've been more if I was better at filleting them. Had 3 fillets for dinner last night and froze the remaining 3 for a later date. Quite a tasty fish. And good fun catching them as well. Biggest was 560mm, smallest 500mm

Have never seen one, but they look like a close relative of the Eastern eel tailed freshwater catfish but hopefully without the bloody nasty spines.
Quite a delicacy, many folk over here fish for them exclusively. Smiley

These have the spines as well. I didn't touch them by hand until I'd removed them. Not sure what the sting is like, but I've heard it's bad

There are a few things in the sea that don't look real good but done well there is nothing better.
Like "occy" for instance, can be bloody awful.
But prepared well and real char grilled, then complemented with a glass of chilled white wine.......very hard to beat  Tongue

That is a very unattractive fish.
