Trout sure are pretty. But, as much as I like trout fishing, nothing beats a nice, long fight with a salmon. But I also have never caught anything except a silver (or king, I can't remember) through the ice, so I would like to do that again. And, it looks like you can easily beat my PB trout. I wait for my parents to say I can go fishing with you.

sea robin


I actually had to look that up, never even heard of that before. Pretty cool looking fish.


In an ugly sort of way. They're actually marine sculpins. One of the great trash fish of my youth fishing in Barnegat Bay when I was really fishing for snapper  bluefish. (The other was blowfish.)


Philly -- Who measures them?


 It was probably the biggest sea robin that I ever  caught.  So I measured it.  I considered them trash fish, but I had read an article in a fishing magazine I get about "trash"  fish which included sea robins and blow fish, and how to clean them and cook them up.    So I kept this one.  You get two nice fillets from them, but they are a pain to fillet.   Dipped them in an egg mix, dredged them in a mix of fine corn meal and Wondra flour, fried them up.  Nice firm white meat.  Pretty tasty.


Those look like irish lord!  they're both sculpins,  so that makes sense
