sculpin fish


Check out what my daughter caught off the jetty here in Florence Oregon. Its called a sculpin fish. The pic does not show the fish "puffed" out but when he was his fins fanned out on each side and poisonous spines at the ends that give a painful sting. This is some type of bottom feeder that was a good CREEPY Halloween fish at best :) Of course, we sent him back like we do all the fishes of the earth.

they are cool! VERY creepy and prehistoric looking. We dont fish off the jetty too often so this was a surprise catch for us. Sierra always catches the fish. No matter what it is :)
