Hi - was wondering if anyone can confirm the fish in the attached photo is in fact a Spotted Bigeye?

Been fishing around Redcliffe for 30 years or so and have never caught, read or even heard about this species, let alone caught one (two in the space of 5 minutes actually) last week only maybe 500-700m off the Scarborough foreshore.

It definitely looks likes like the Spotted Bigeye I found via Google here - Please login or register to see this link.

Can anyone confirm this species, and have you ever caught one in Moreton Bay? I can't hardly find any info on them online, especially in Qld waters and am very curious. I released both fish I caught - they were both about 33cm.
