The Scourge Of The Great South Bay

Quick post today...

Above is the crusher of many fluke fishermen dreams, the eater of bait, the slicer of many hands..I give you...the sea robin. Supposedly its a good fish to eat but if you ever look at one in person, the only thing you want to do with it is bang it against your boat. With its big dopey eyes, ultra wide mouth, and its huge bat-like wings, I can't imagine this tasting any better than human urine (not that I've ever tasted that). Even worse, it has horns on its back that can cut your hand open when you try to grip it. On the plus side, they make a charming croaking noise.

Add those damn sea skates to the list of Scourges. They put up a nasty fight too.

Get a picture of that alien up there.
