Houndfish (Crocodile Needlefish)

 Crocodile Needle Fish 

We call them Houndfish. They get to be five feet long. The bones are same color blue as their mouths, the meat is even a bit aquamarine color as well. Houndfish are easy to fillet and taste excellent, very similar to rainbow trout. The meat cooks up clean white, delicate, with very nice flavor. We normally always throw them back. Fairly regular catch while fishing dead bait off the outriggers near shore.
