I released a scamp a couple of years ago by pegleg pete's... he had been on ice for 6 hours and when i went to filet him he kicked... I asked the customers if they cared if I released him, 6 hours out of water and still alive I figured he deserved a second chance. A little water over the gills and he swam off. He was prob 18 inches... maybe this is one of his offspring!!

nice fish and definitely looks like a scamp. I have caught several small scamp but never a legal one in the bay! its funny when you release a fish that you would have eaten just to find out it was a legal prized fish!! have done that before with small legal black sea bass! needless to say.. i want that fish back for the dinner table!!
