    Default Wolf-fish , Wolf-eel. The big one.

    I just seen this and thought I'd share. I caught a 38"err out of Valdez, but this one beats mine by a mile, lol.

    It is hard to tell in the poor pix that I got of this one, but she was pretty big. I never took her out of the water but she was over 50 pounds. Caught her out on the east side of northern knight island.

    Not many things give me the heabie jeebies, but every time I bring one in the boat it drives be crazy. Too ugly of a fish to eat, but I hear they are delicious.

    I've munched a couple and was surprised at the very mild flavor....almost too mild to be of interest to me. You get a nice, long uniform filet, though. I released a couple nice ones this year but they were both smaller than Bullelkklr's. They'll chomp you if you give them a chance. I finally cut the leader on one and left the small circle hook embedded. My neighbor's kid has fish hooks in her eyebrows, lips, ears and who knows where else and seems to function so I doubt it was a big deal for the wolf fish.

    I have eaten them when I fished off of the East Coast (Plymouth rock) but that gal was caught by a buddy and I told him I'd kill her if he wanted. He wanted to let her swim so I did.

    When he was reeling her up and while I was trying to get the hook out of her jaw, the porpoise repeatedly came very close to the boat. It was kind of like the eel was calling them - or maybe they wanted to eat her. It was strange.

    Probably close to 4'. We did get one in the 5' range and then another that was closer to 4'. I'm guessing (really guessing) they max out around 5'.
