NOAA just declared an emergency closure on the harvest of Atlantic Bumper so I hope you didn't keep it.

I figured as much... I threw it back... immediately.

But if I hadn't... say I had put him in the freezer with the rest of my by-catch to use for chum... Your saying probably wouldn't have been a good idea?

Good thing my sabiki rig has non-offset circle hooks on it so I was able to let the little guy go with no harm...

Those two little anal spines will teach you new, non politically correct words and enable you to embarrass drunken sailors.

I always return them to the water right after I catch them...usually under a balloon so that I can check on them from time to time to make sure they are making it ok.

Ditto on the spines!

As far as spines go, they don't hold a candle to Leather Jacks.
Yep. We always called leathernecks fire fish, for obvious reasons.
