Leo (The Spear fishermen) wrote a great article about being stung by those tasty lionfish.

 

I guess the motto should be, "eat but don't touch"

The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

That hurt just reading it. They are beaytiful. We had one in an aquarium years ago. He would actually lower his head and aim his fins at you when you would clean the tank.

I guess they can get you even after they are dead; when you're cleaning one?

I think I shot a little more than a dozen of them last week and I am always careful with those spines.  We did take our catch to La Peralita and had the cook them up for us.

North, very far north.  We were miles north of the northern light house.  Nobody dives up there so they are extremely prevalent.  I was also a few miles north/ nw of passion island back in Feb and we slaughtered loads of them there all under low hanging shelves in about 46-60 feet of water.
