Default Wierd Looking, Trumpet Fish

Have you seen many of these? This Trumpet Fish ate a herring and fought well. This was caught yesterday 06/03/12. It is my first time catching one. Yes, he was released after photo.

Not being a smartass, but that's actually a cornet fish. They a very closely related to a trumpetfish but are more slender and have a larger tail

I'm surprised no one has said that it was a deformed Ballyhoo due to BP.

Trumpet, Trombone, Cornet; name may have been a little off, but still was surprising.

I caught one about 2 years ago and had to look it up to see the species. Was most definitely a surprising catch though.
