Cool! Wish I would have seen it. The presence of rock bass suggests that it
was one of the shallower wrecks, and that the sculpins were either slimy or
"mottled" sculpins. You wouldn't mistake either spoonhead or deepwater
sculpins for these- the median fins on the deepwater are HUGE, with the
membranes deeply incised between the rays, and they have big bony knobs on
the top of their head. The spoonhead (as the name suggests) has an
incredibly flattened head, and long, recurved preopercular spines.
