I had a session on the boat today out of Ardrossan. Among a mixed bag consisting of Ling, Cod, Herring, Mackerel, Gurnard, Whiting was this creature from the deep that even a large gull refused to touch before it swam away to safety. Anybody caught one before? It was a very bright orange colour.

Ask everybody on here to put their hands up if they have ever caught one and you will see how rare they are. Nice wee fish to add to your species.:clap2:

I caught some 3-4 feet long "Silver Scabbardfish" in Durban, but there unusual fish (for a Scotsman) were commonplace, but this one today freaked me out. I was scared to even touch it..big feartie. Mind you the gull took one look at it on the surface and beat it..
Nothing to worry about, they catch them 2 at a time in Cornwall..
I'll be braver next time...

Am sure Cocky had them in Loch Fyne a couple of years ago? The odd one pops up here - but very, very rarely.
