SCORPIAN FISH

Post by JAG21 »

Hi to all fairly new to fishing around 2 years or so, so was hoping for some info on a fish a caught on saturday off brighton marina east arm which was apparently a Scorpian fish from what one of the guys who came round to collect the money said and after googling it appears it was. My qusetion is how common are they and are they as posionous as searches have said.

many thanks

1) Very common. Various local names: Bullhead, Father Lasher etc.

2) Not poisonous at all.
