    Default Anyone know what kind of fish

    About 5 years ago I was in Sitka when I caught this weird fish. It was about a foot long, was dark green and black. It had 2 horn sticking out of its head (no bs) that were about 2" long and had 1 inch spines going down its back. I know it wasn't a rockfish or irish lord or a greenling. Anyone have any ideas? I have video of it and am making pics soon. Will post them!

    I'm not sure what fishyou have, but sounds like a rock fish to me. Here is a Rock Fish Key I have found.

    Cabezon are a blast to catch on light tackle in shallow rocky water. They pull like little bull dogs, and great eating. In CA we catch a lot that are a motled red in color. Easy to catch bouncing lead head scampi tails in motor oil & root beer color.
