Standard procedure appears to be to not touch many of the fish as they are either poisonous or they have VERY sharp fins and will cut you up pretty badly. We have no idea what kind of fish this is, so it gets the towel treatment to get unhooked.
I don’t know what kind of fish this is, but it is pretty solid for it’s size. A gal yesterday scaled one to bring home. She said it was tastey. I think a mess of these filleted out and fried up might be good. One of these days I guess.
