Horn Pout

Mark Ring brought this unusual fish in yesterday.  The diamond pattern markings going in all different directions on it’s head are pretty neat.  You don’t normally see sharp straight lines as markings on fish.  Its almost prehistoric looking.

    I have seen these diving. He looks small, and not as leafy looking as a sea raven, I think he is a sculpin.
