COOL... Did he have a barb like a stingray? Or a ribbed back like a skate?

Ribbed back like a skate. He was cool. I don't know anything about them so took a quick pic and got him back in the water.

Wow, that is really cool. Kudos on the release. I had no idea that we had them around here. Last one I saw was in Komodo islands. So many sunfish this year and then this thing. For a cool spring we have had some real warm water species around here.

That was an arrow head pointer fish. Been totally extinct for more than 300 years. You should have mounted that one, so they never existed again. That was the only one left in the world. Glad you caught it.
Hell of a catch....

Very nice unusual catch Gio! It reminded of the Angel sharks we have back in Cali. I love the variety of fish here in the panhandle, you never know what your going to reel in! UGLY
