Great vids Tmeke!
Try one of those Lady Fish aka in Mehico: "Machete". You will never forget it!
There are tons of them on the shallow shell bottom shoals on the east side of Isla San Jorge. They will always take a trolled lure like a Rebel Fast Track. A blast to catch, good fighters and big jumpers.
Creepy looking with those huge eyes but actually quite pretty fish with the bright yellow face. Many years ago I caught a boat load maybe twenty and some get pretty big. Thought my wolf pack would just dig them grilled on the barbie here at home as we do with anything we can do a "meat run".
After they cooled and we finished grilling our Sierra steaks we let the dogs at them. They took a sniff then PISSED ON THEM!
I picked at the meat and noted that they actually had more bones than meat, even worse than a carp. I did do a taste test and the closest description that I could conjure up in the English language was "old warm moldy wet cardboard". No fish taste at all.
Funny thing though, the California Sea Lions based at La Isla just love stealing them as you pull them in. They grab them and in one slap knock the lure out of the fishes mouth the swallow them in one gulp.
