So where is the fish that will haunt my nightmares? All I see is some weirdo with human-like teeth. That's not scary. That's just weird.
 
2013-03-21 11:22:07 PM  
Will it swim up my urethra? Then no, it's not that scary.

I love it when articles talk about fish we considered "trash fish" 25 years ago. All of a sudden they're like ahi tuna or something.

There's nothing like the thought of a delicious piece of meat with human teeth wrapped in prison stripes to put you to a gentle, dreamless sleep.

Another good thing about this huge creep is that, unlike one of its relatives, the Salema porgy (Sarpa salpa), you won't risk having a terrible trip when you eat one. Apparently they taste great!


Shut. Up.

I gotta agree with submitter, anything with more than one row of teeth needs to DIAF.

Sheepshead article without mentioning their otoliths?

Pfft. 

theflatline: I have been eating sheepshead for over 30 years, and people before me, nothing to see here.


I haven't eaten them.  Everyone I know says they taste like shiat but they admit they haven't eaten them (and some of these morons are the folks who say catfish tastes bad).

I am looking forward to trying them once I get my boat back in the water.  Do you fry or grill em?

The sheepshead fish has human teeth, but it's okay because it won't give you a psychedelic crisis

those aren't human teeth, they're fish teeth. and ain't nothin' ever gave me a psychedelic crisis. and i've been linked with another person and as one we lived in a DOS command prompt. i was once distracted from contemplating how my wall turned into pencils by the hideous gremlins who were peeking at me thru the window. fish teeth?  Thbbbt.

They can be fun to catch but, in my opinion, hardly worth targeting as a food fish.  It can be okay scaled, scored, seasoned and broiled/baked/grilled but (to me) its more of a chowder ingredient.

Born and raised there, loved fishing for them and they do make for a delicious fried fish dinner.

SpinStopper: Not MY nightmares.  I have a MUCH more active imagination than t


My thoughts, too. It's sorta weird, but nothing I'd have nightmares about. There are 100 things more scary in the ocean alone.

Frilled shark, viper fish, barreleyes, goblin shark, hell, any of the variations of the freaky-ass anglerfish. That shiat is scary.

Gulper Eel devours all of the nightmares in here for breakfast.

Gulper Eel can consume an animal nearly twice its size with one big gulp. Gulper Eel is super-stretchy.

Gulper Eel does not grow large enough to devour man. Gulper Eel will remedy this problem one day...
