We catch them during a floating bait that floats off the bottom ie suspended in the water and anchored by a weight below.

They are filter feeders with gills that interlock forming elementary baleen plates.

They are a pest wreaking havoc in the ecosystem. Same fish that have taken over the whole Mississipi basin and threatening the Great Lakes.

Grows to around 20kg. I just happen to hold the SA ANGLING record on them at 12.9kg
