Pulled up two of these yesterday from the kelp in front of SC lighthouse.  Im sure it is a color variant of cabezon,  threw it back since it was undersized anyways.   It was super red with a purple base color where the white undersides are.  Anyone ever get anything like this?  Pretty dope, and actually looks like plastic/glass.

When I read the title I thought to myself cabbies come in all colors depending on where they're hanging and what they're eating,

BUT, I've never seen anything like that,  very cool looking fish.

I have seen red cabbies.  Taste just as good as the other colors.

Cabezon are generally 2 colors: either green or red. I forget the #s but it's like 90% of redish cabs are male and 70% of greenish cabs are female. They aren't normally so red though. Those are pretty rare and we call em devil cabs. I've seen about 6 over the years but always near Carmel. Never bigger than ~16" long. That's the first (and second haha) I've seen from SC. I think it might be a life phase that some males go through as they grow up. I always wanted to put one in an aquarium because they're beautiful fish.

Looks more like  the kelp greenling. Have you seen the color of the water in SC the past couple of weeks. Theres been a red tint to it.

The way the mouth/head shape and size looks, I believe it is a rock greenling - Hexagrammos lagocephalus, not a Cabezon.

Was it smooth skinned or were there any scales?

Ive caught my fair share of cabbies.  And well, a few greenling.  Im leaning a lot towards cabbie.  All the features point to it being a cabbie for many reasons as ive seen the whole thing up close.  Someone suggested irish lord, but i dont agree either.
