Photo of the Week - Lophoides sp.

These Tassled Anglers have very distinct esca (the "tassle" on one of their dorsal spines) that look just like brine shrimp. They have max size of about 10" but are much more commonly found at half that or less. The fish here almost always aggressively eat live foods immediately, but also segue over to small frozen silversides within a couple days.
