Scorpion Cod

Mon, 2007-10-08 15:28

Great fish to feed when diving.  They are extremely fast.  Actually fear them more then sharks (near nil aanyway) as they blend into the reefy structure very well. Have had a few spines in the wetsuit over the years whilst hunting for crays.

Cheers Pete

Some relief

Mon, 2007-10-08 16:15

Hot water (not hot enough to burn though) will lessen the pain...apparently, as never been stung myself.  This treatment applies to most 'stinging' fish.

I bet sherbert wont get stung again - ouch.

They have a massive mouth and normally can unhook them outside the boat with some pliers and a quick wriggle!  Sh!t loads out 40m way.

I am not 100% for this fish

Fri, 2007-10-26 09:58

I am not 100% for this fish but as with cobbler, catties etc the best way to give pain relief for poison it to use the slime from the belly of the fish and rub it on the wound.
