Can anyone tell me what the eggs/roe look like, coloring etc.?
pretty shure the eggs are little yellow balls at least all the cat eggs ive seen dont know that ive seen flathead eggs but now that i think about it all the fish eggs ive seen have like that
The ones I've found, around here,, look like little round balls,,a creamy light yellow color, about half the dimeter of a BB..and, they're in a Sack inside the fish, seems to be 1000's of them..
I did read a report on flathead reproduction but it failed on coloration. It did say the males guarded the nest. Reason why I'm interested is we caught a small male flathead that a gelatenous substance on it and thought possibly it was guarding the nest and maybe it was some of the roe on it. It was gelatenous and offwhite clear in color.
Sounds weird. Doesn't sound like eggs, if you clean a female full of eggs you'll know it. 2 sacks full of yellow/orange balls.
