Our dear customer from California Mr. Kohlbry shared this great picture of him fishing with his white poly-cotton guayabera shirt, not sure if this impacted his luck but you never know. By the way he said “…Sure is an ugly critter, ain’t it. Pretty homely fish, too!.. , that wasn’t an especially large one — they can reach 40 pounds here, up to 90 or more in southeast Alaska and British Columbia.. ..
Can you name this fish?
It looks to me like an ugly cousin of the grouper. Thanks Mr. Kohlbry for sharing this great pic with us.
