    Tried sculpin "backstraps" once and they were good! Yeah, I admit it but it's firm and similar to cabezon or blue ling. Firm with a touch of shrimpy/crabby flavor. I have also tried dogfish, arrowtoothed flounder, and atka makerel. SOme good, some really bad!

    Anyone ever eat one?

    I've heard in some places they are a delicacy. Like cod, we often treat them as a trash fish when they are in fact very good to eat. Never tried to confirm this myself. They are just so ugly....:eek:

    Help identify this fish

    Last July I was fishing for silvers in Valdez. As reeled in the lure (a silver / orange spoon) I would get hits from about 4-5 feet from shore from very small fish, and had to reel fast to out run them.

    They were a darker green on their backs, about 4-5 inches long and had HUGE mouths with small needle teeth. What are they?

    Thanks
