Default Fish id help

Caught this guy at the jetties today, along with two sheepshead that may be the hardest earned fish I've ever caught! That wind was kickin my butt today. I thought it was a searobin at first, but I've never seen one like this. It's an ugly mug whatever it is

Looks like some sort of sea robin / lizard fish hybrid. Does it have teeth ?

99.9% sure this is a toadfish. Also know as Opsanus beta, oyster dog, and mudfish.

I don't touch saltwater fish I don't know, just in case. I'm still a Newb so all these ugly little bastards get the pliers.
