Habitat: The lower reaches of rivers, estuaries, rocky reefs and ocean beaches from Bundaberg and further south to the Queensland border.
Local Haunts: In the Maroochy River, jew territorially guard deep holes and inlets where schools of baitfish enter. Jew work alone and can easily be targeted at the river mouth, South Channel, the deep water opposite Yinni Street and at the Cod Hole.
