Ah yea, that's an awesome fish.  I love the photophores that line the body.  Nice photos and nice catch!

If that were to be a sculpin, you should not be holding it anywhere near the dorsal fins.

...yeah the concern is venomous spines or something right?  When i first saw it, bullhead(staghorn sculpin?) looking came to mind.  Whatever the case, it was sorta gnarly looking and i was hesitant to even touch it.

Cool fish. Thanks for the post.

Went fishing out of Newport Beach last year and caught some sculpins. Only the deckhands were able to handle those per boat rules.

Those weren’t sculpins. They were sculpins. Sculpins aren’t sculpins.

And I’m not making that up. What are called “sculpin” in SoCal are California scorpionfish, which are not sculpins at all.

Those fish are terrifying.

I had one attack me once.

10 feet long and mouth full of razor sharp teeth.

Man eating zombie fish!!!

Looks like it was pretty chill till you started stabbing at it with the tip of your spear  :smt044
