Default Fish ID please


We got this oddball puffer fish today while catching spinner sharks off the beach. I know that I have seen a pic of one somewhere but it's name escapes me. Who can help me out? Spinners are thick off of the beach here in Stuart btw.

That's it! Thanks. Nasty chompers on that thing. Like a sharp strong parrot beak. Ripped off chunks of bluefish with no problems at all.

Yeah, they'll bite your finger off. They are good eating if you clean them properly.

...and they'll chomp right through a hook, so watch those fingertips.
