I caught this 18" guy on a 7" white frogtail. My first. I was stoked to see his bright blue coloration and orange dotting up close. Sent him back right after I got these pics :)

If you're ok with the potential fine for keeping an undersized fish. :)
Yeah, I am not entering the lottery for a $1,000 fine or whatever for 2lbs of green lingcod meat lol.

Truth be told I'd rather keep that dude in an aquarium anyway.

I was happy to send him back. My understanding is that the green coloration is still not well understood. I take that to mean genetics probably are, or at the very least, may, be related. I want to see more of these guys not less.
