Default Lionfish in belly of Cobia

Went out yesterday and got our limit of snapper and a Cobia topside. Speared some Lionfish after that. Thought it was interesting to find a Lionfish in the Cobia's belly

that appears to be a sea robin not a lionfish from the cobia's belly. the eyes are set too far back and the mouth is too wide. I may be wrong but I may be right. just an observation.

the fish in the center of the digested picture is a Sea Robin.

Crap! on the Sea Robin thing. I was kinda excited to think something other than us spearfishermen might target these things.

We killed about an equal amount of Lionfish to what you see in the picture, but my homemade zoo keeper was slap full, so we just beat the crap out of them on the rocks.

I wouldn't doubt a cobia eating a lion fish, a friend caught one with a stingray in his belly... Snappers have been known To eat them and well as Jew fish.


Kill all of them.
