          They groan at you when you take the hook out...no joke.

          basically they are a bottom feeder that you catch at slack tide..I have been getting them regardless of the tide movement

              Being a cheesehead myself, now living in Florida, I actually knew what the OP was talking about. and yes, they are strange looking and like many of the weird looking fish in salt water, yes they do make sounds.

              The one in the picture doesnt have the spiny dorsal fin raised.

                Have caught many over the years growing up on Long Island and fishing the sound. Have never eaten any but was told by a fellow co worker at the NMFS they are good to eat

                  Yeah, people are starting to eat them now. I've always considered them a trash fish.

                  It's just like the Gray trigger fish down in the Gulf of Mexico, they were always considered a trash fish until the Red Snapper and Grouper became scarce, then everyone started eating them and now there's a conservative limit on them.

                  If everything keeps going the way it has been the only thing that's going to be left in the ocean is jelly fish and someone will figure out a way to eat them too!
                  I consider overkill a job well done... plus a little extra.

                  There's as many ways to do something as there is people to tell you how to do it... but not all of them are the right way.

                  The drinking and debauchery will continue until morale improves... and maybe for a little while after.
