I think it might be a yellow tailed jack. But I haven't heard of them moving into fresh water. Anyone?

Hi Jeen,

The river joins the backwater about a km from the place where I was casting the spoon in hope of catching a mulley.
A local fishing there told me that they sometimes catch barra's & MJ's.

It's a juvenile Giant Trevally.
If you have a look on Fishbase, you'll see hat the top middle picture is the twin of your fish.

Several trevally species do well in completely fresh water although they can't breed there.
Bigeye Trevally are actually introduced into a few freshwater impoundments in Australia as sportfish.

Hi Bobby,

Don't know mate.. have been trying for long to catch one (what is supposed to be common catch) .. I was actually hoping to catch a Mulley at this particular river .

Abhi (spoon) and Mr. Arun should know more on Mulley waters.

Santosh
