Another great find. Well done! A striatus seems most likely for the ID, based on the lure and the stripe pattern, as well as location; although these are more likely to be found in estuaries. I have even had one float past while pawning at night in Brou Lake.

Thanks, my husband found this and dived down a bit to get better pictures with our little camera. We have never seen anything like this before and I thought anglerfish were all big. Their hunting technique is clever with the lure.
