Most Wanted : Blackbelly Rosefish (Bluemouth).

What a cool name! This poisonous member of the scorpion fish family is found, amongst other places, in the deep waters several miles off the south west coast of Ireland so catching one is an excuse for another trip!

Sulking in the depths.

Also known as bluemouth because, you've probably guessed it, the inside of their mouths is a shade of blue. Scorpionfish are one of my favourite families of species so taking all of the above into consideration I have to add the blackbelly rosefish to my "Most Wanted" list.

Tight lines, Scott.
