• Monacanthidae spp

Overview Edit

Seen as a plague by many sportfishers, the humble leatherjacket actually provides a sweet tasting meal to those unfortunate enough to have them invade their fishing ground. Different species of the fish are present right around Australia - all sharing the characteristics of a single rough spine up top, and a rough skin.

Despite their tasty meat they can become a nuisance when swarms of them are attacking your Soft Plastics
