How does that look anything like a pufferfish? Maybe something got lost in translation.
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.

"It's a baby fahkin wheeeel, Joey!"

My other question was why they had to tell us it was seen during a 20 mile hike.  WTF does that have to do with the story other than maybe the reportee was dillusional from excersion...

This sounded interesting but like most other people commenting on it, it sounded fishy.... I googled it and found another article that supports the claim.

I don't think Lion Fish are from Mexico........but definitely freaky finding those porcupine fish on shore.

Think the poison in those spines are still potent?

I don't think they are poisonous. I've handled them alive a bunch of times in and out of the water. If you harass them they will inflate and just float around extremely slow and you can nab them as long as you don't apply too much pressure and stay away from their beak like teeth you're cool. It's similar to handling uni but I know uni has toxins in their spines.

There are quite a few types of puffer fish that are poisonous to eat and are a sashimi delicacy but caution has to be taken in preparation.

I know the Blob was discussed earlier this yr. And time will tell. But if this is true, I think the crab season could be a tell tail sign. As they like like cooler water and the depth should be deeper. But the change off could be Lobster moving in.

Lion Fish are from the east coast but heard of some evading the gulf of mexico.. Maybe they work there way up here?

Lionfish are from the tropics, they came here during some storm.  Fugu from Asian countries are extremely poisonous.

I hear lionfish is really good eating,might be a target species since there won't be any stripers around
My biggest worry is that my wife(when I'm dead)will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it
