One of the coolest things about fishing deep are the unexpected catches that sometimes come to the surface. I've seen a few strange things over the years, but have rarely had a camera. This past week while fishing for sablefish we pulled up four of these guys. All were released, and it's not the first time we've caught 'em, but I still think they're one of the strangest looking fish in the Alaskan ocean.
We also pulled up a pretty cool looking brittle star (I think?) when out shrimping earlier this year.
Does anyone else have anything that they caught that was strange, uncommon, or just kind of odd looking?
