Two weird fish I caught


I caught these two fish in Padre Island. I have no idea what they are called. The first is really ugly. The second one is kind of neat looking.

My wife says she thinks the first one is a "rock fish".

I think they are products of evolution from where they are coming from.

Not sure. The first one looks like it could be a small monkfish. They are about as ugly as they come but great eating as a healthier substitute for lobster. Didn't think they hung out where you were though. Second one is cute and looks like a cartoon model!



Hope you put them back. They look to be a tad small for eating yet.

Looks like a Mud Toad, also called an Oyster fish.
