That would have done it. If he had a certified scale with him, or was willing to keep it, that would have been the all tackle rocord. The Southern Stargazer, Astroscopus y-graecum (Cuvier, 1829) is an open fish. No record at all. Tell him welcome to the "I wish I had known the record" club.

He told me that if he had a wooden stake or silver bullets, he might have thought about it.

Nope, all he needed was a cross and garlic.

He would have gotten a surprise. They hold a charge, if you touch them behind the head you'll get a nice shock.

I'm one of those people that like ugly fish. There are some that are so ugly they are cool looking. I think this fish is in that catagory. It's actually kinda pretty if you ignore that ugly mug on it.

Then you need to Google a Wolf Fish. We catch them from time to time while bottom fishing.

I've seen them. That's actually a pretty good example of the 'so ugly it's cool' fish. I think they have a face kind of like an old boxer, and not a very good one.

I just noticed you are on the Atlantic side. Are yours related to the ones on the West Coast?
