Something toothy was lurking in the yoohoo this morning and when I finally got a bit I set the hook a little too hard. 

Any ideas?

No clue about the fish JK. Very cool through.

 

Nice Scabelly's metal lip! I got the same one and it casts and swims and works great.....

Houndfish? Those look like houndfish teeth I’ve seen in pictures. 

I think the proportions of teeth to jaw are a little off and houndfish's jaw looks straighter?

Yes sir, that little Danny and his new Peanut were great during the little bit of mullet/peanut run that I saw.

The "teeth" make it look like a jaw bone but jaw bones tend to be "L" shaped and it's not.

Looks a lot like a pectoral fin bone,no idea what from...

Yep. I couldn’t let this one go. Kept looking and came up with monkfish also. Looks like bottom jaw or maybe just one half of the bottom jaw. I used to cook these when I worked in restaurants a decade plus ago. Very tasty — like the best flavor of a tasty fish meets the best part of a tasty lobster combined. Shame it “broke off”!!

 

i wonder if they don’t come into the surf line unless it’s cloudy? If I understand it correctly, monkfish is normally a bottom fish in more like 40-50’ but I could be wrong about that. Just something I heard a long time ago. I also heard they were almost gone around these parts. 

 

Cool stuff! Thanks for sharing!
