This Houndfish’s Bark is Worse Than its Bite (but Just Barely)

When you go fishing in Florida, you never know what you’re going to catch.

Filmed in southern Florida, this video documents just one of the many things that can happen on a deep sea fishing trip. Watch as this crew of anglers comes across a strange-looking houndfish while on a wreck fishing adventure.

As you just saw, these guys weren’t sure if this fish was a houndfish, but they enjoyed reeling it in anyway. Here’s what the Youtube user had to say about the fish, “I’ve caught lots of needlefish and Houndfish, but none that looked this bizarre.”

Did you see the different patterns on its tail? This was the one thing that made the anglers question whether or not it was a houndfish.

Take a lesson from this video for your next Florida fishing trip. You never know what you will find in the deep ocean, but whatever you catch respect the fish and stay safe.
