Red Rock Cod but can go under different common names (Eastern Red Scorpionfish) mind you I never head any one calling them anything than a Red Rock Cod. As Dirvin21 said don't get spiked by one they bloody hurt, but very good eating if you get one big enough.

"Scorpaena jacksoniensis"

I've never been that poor , but each to their own I guess . I find it amusing that these days a lot of the fish that I was told were rubbish as a kid are now finding their way onto dinner plates .

Cheers ,Bruce .

Sorry Ron.c but just too much wastage to justify ending their days when there are many more preferable species to be had , but like I said each to their own .

You did the right thing throwing him back because you weren't sure, but next time ..... nice white flesh and excellent eating.
