Hey. I'm fishing in Miami, little and big Maule
lake. The fish I'm talking about is pretty much everywhere in South Florida. It's in size anything from finger length to a good 5 lb monster. It is poisonous and really nasty looking. There are two species, one has spots all over it, like a leopard or jaguar, and another one is stripped like a frog.
When you take it out it inflates itself. (no, it don't look like a puffer fish)
...and it makes noise, it cries.
I want to know how its called, and whether I can handle it with bare hands to take hook out.
Because until now I've been cutting hooks off, and it just screws my hole rig, and I loose hooks. So I wonder if it's safe to handle that thing.
