Not rare, but different. Are these any good to eat?

       And of course you put it back on the same rock you pulled it from.  . :smt003

       I would have considered it a gift from the sea... it would be rude to refuse it.

Not rare for SoCal, but not too common up around these parts. My 2nd one so far.

I caught a ski-boat anchor once, fishing in the Delta near Pittsburgh, didn't take a pic.. Looked like they tried to use that yellow floating line, I managed to snag the 18" of what was left of the rope and dragged it to the surface. before it broke the water I was wondering if I had a dead body on the line,, seen some sketchy sh*t in Pittburgh...
Let me explain something to you. Um, I am not "Mr. Lebowski". You're Mr. Lebowski. I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

Three monkey-face prickle-backs if I had caught a big 1 first I would have released the small 1,However by the time I caught the large one's the tiny seeming 1 where dead as a rock!.Yet all were absolutely delicious & fed 8 persons w/enough left over meat for two large Breakfast taco's!
Avid lifetime sports fisherman,Caught three monkey-face prickle-backs  today two very large,cooked w/skin on in oven garlic salt and pepper generously sprinkled ! It was Absolutely Delicious! Never more will I remove the skin until after cooking,likens the skin to either freshwater trout or salmon and the back-bone pulls free just like a trout in a single piece,merely remove top and bottom sets of bony prickles,they also come off as a unit if your careful w/a common fork,It's another white meat tougher than fall apart fish,yet flakes quite well! Three Eel's fed 6 adults w/ enough extra to feed two more adult servings,Perhaps Breakfast. Another trip tomorrow/Loves the end of the year low and negative tides it allows me to fish up to waist deep,yet catch 2'4" prickle-backs w/ fat slabs of meat(Can u tell I've Always been a meat fisherman?) Why would I bother catching any critter w/the possibility of causing its death/catch and release is for under-sized fish and affluent anglers!
