The World's Ugliest Fish?

I've always enjoyed seeing just what will come from the water next. Of course , ugly doesn't mean that the fish will taste bad - you just have to know how to clean them!

  3. Doesn't look any worse than a ling cod. That's my favorite fish to eat (that I catch here. Still love salmon best though.)

  4. Ugly for sure, but I always thought that crawdad's were the "poor man's lobster"?
