Leeches! You need leeches!

It'll get better, not gone, in a couple days. Hydrocortisone cream helps.

Sculpins arnt related to rockfish

That's okay, sculpins aren't related to sculpins either.
Oh man, this threw me for a loop until i did a google search,  so sculpins  arnt scuplins, but sculpins are related to rockfish,


 sculpins are more related to lingcod and cabs than.

 Now who the f#ck decided to call a scorpion fish a sculpin and cause this mess i had no clue i was falling victim of...

I'm just spitting a WAG but scoprionfish have been called sculpin for many, many years in SoCal.  I'm thinking that it was misidentified or misclassified long ago, and the name stuck.  There is a really popular fishery for scorpionfish down there and the confusing common name isn't going to change any time soon.

It's confusing though because we have numerous true sculpins up here, none of which are venomous**, most notably cabezon and irish lords.  Given how freely people move between northern and southern California, confusion was inevitable.

**The roe of cabezon (and maybe other true sculpins?) is poisonous.  Don't eat it.

See i always thought irish lords are venomous and was always super carefull while releasing them.
  And have only caught a few fake sculpins in my life so i never felt like messing with them since they were pretty small.   Very good to know

So hot compress is the 1st aid.  We are SOL in the kayaks then.....

Aren't we back to peeing on it?   :smt005

Hmmm..... pee in the bag and dip your hand in it  --> warm compress + ammonia   -----> two-in-one deal!  :-)

This'll make me sound dumb, but I was young at the time. Pulled a massive quillback up on my poke pole and took several spines all the way through my hand. It curled up in a red hot ball and was paralyzed and inflamed until the next day and ached for a while. That was miserable. I've had a few rough days on kelp and grass rockfish off of Santa Barbara, as well.  I have a great fish grabber and have relied on nets, gaffs and harpoons since those times.

Off topic but maybe not...since Gio is about to embark on an epic Alaska to Mexico road trip...worth remembering that apparently wolf eels have sharp teeth and strong jaws...

Wow a wolf eel did that? Their teeth look wicked, but dull like a molar. Good to know they can inflict damage

Felt like it was being crushed in a vice...lucky that I was able to rip the thumb out before it did more damage I think...got a few cool scars still lol

Weird looking at older footage... GoPro quality has gotten a lot better in the past few years!!
