Caught in the Sound, it was wrapped up in my braided line 10 feet above the flasher.
one long fin down its back, none on the bottom. Must have thrown a loop as the DR was sent down and lassoed that sucker! Had about a 1/2 inch square area torn from the other side right in the middle of the body where the line was. No signs of life and we did not perform artificial respiration on it!
Approx. 6" long.

This is a new one to me!

Ducker!

That is what Ron said. A walleye in the Salt? A Pollock yes. Is this a natural Frankinfish?[emoji245]

If it had a long fin must be a baby albacore

Yep, a Pollock or Hake of some sort. There is such a species as "Walleye Pollock".

I'd say pollock.
The Alaska Pollock is a Walleye Pollock...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaska_Pollock


They have 3 distinct fins on top, this guy only had one, and nothing on the bottom!

The North Pacific Hake (Whiting) looks to have a longer lower jaw than the fish in the picture. Of course the teeth on a hake are leader eating SOB's, I don't think the pollock has those.

walleye pollock?
Body and jaw look correct like the Hake pics, but the upper fin was just one, not three, and no lower fin.
Definitely a frankinfish! maybe coasted over from Japan, though it didn't glow in the dark!

Tom, it was Sunday, still work 40 every week! Bummer!

Tasted like chicken!

Ducker!
