Nice little fish Lenny, about a dozen or so of them and you'ld have enough for a sarnie.
Well done to the young lad with his Flounder:thumbs:

I caught one of those a couple of years ago, in fact identical , i looked up my book of fishes and also recognised it as a sand gobie..
would also like to see that confirmed by an expert, but i think you're right..

Yep... looks like a male sand goby (pomatoschistus microps).... apparently these little blighters can grow to the enormous 6cm... so may well be worth registering this one with the record fish committee! If that doesn't work -try sending the photo to Seadangler and claiming it was 3lb 4oz .... You should get a prize for that.... ahem ... or not!:crazy:

yup looks like a male Sand goby to me, I had two in two drops off the boat at Weymouth a few years back :)
