Stout Longtom is another member of the Australian longtom family.
How To Identify:
Longtoms are a group of slender fish with long jaws and sharp teeth. Stout longtoms are green on top and silvery below and probably the most common of the longtoms. They grow to about 1.3 meters.
How To Catch:
Long Toms are usually caught while fishing for other species. They have long snouts with sharp teeth for eating small fish so they avidly take lures however they can be difficult to hook. They will also take bait such as small fish or strips of fish bait. They are very acrobatic once hooked and will leap in the air, a good fight on light gear.
Stout Longtom are found from Northern New South Wales, up the Queensland coast, across the Northern Territory into Northern Western Australia.
