First time I caught one of these. I was on a catch and release mission today targeting kingfish. And then this guy took my jig. As I heard that they are really good tasting I couldn't help myself and keep it. After an initial burst it was like dragging up a heavy weight. It had lots of tasty looking meat on it. Apparently it has poisonous spines that can give you a nasty jab. I was lucky to avoid them. Unfortunately it brought my catch and release mission to an abrupt end as I didn't have any cooler bag with me. So had to head back straight to camp and fillet the fish to keep it in good condition. It will be dinner tonight.
