It must be rare because of all of the times it's on special at the fish shop around the corner.


I don't think they've ever not had opah on special.

Done in one.

Also, fun fact: her real name is "Orpah", but people consistently mispronounced it for long enough that she just goes by "Oprah" now.

I was under the impression it was screwed up at birth on the certificate and the parents just kept it.

According to wikipedia, Opah fish are frequently pulled in as bycatch when boats are netting for tuna.

So I suppose you wouldn't consider them rare in practical terms, but I wouldn't doubt it's rare to catch one while deep-sea fishing.

Honestly that is an ugly name I'm glad everyone screwed it up.

Yeah, that's the story I heard as well. But who truly knows the dark secrets of the Eldritch Daytime TV Baroness?

they aren't a rare fish, they're a rare fish to catch. there's a difference

I read the headline as "oprah fish". Clicked, saw massive fish, chuckled.

That's because the ones you can't catch know how to do it 강남 style.

If I found an opah fish, will it give me a brand-new car? (Yep...and then stick me for

FTFA:  "are a rare catch and three at once is even more of a surprise since they don't often travel in packs"

Fish travel in schools.

Wolves travel in packs.

They're OK. I eat it once in a while. It's frequently available at my local fish market.

Catching anything while deep sea trolling is rate.

/0 for 3 on charters, determined not to go 0 for 4.
