Those are the notorious slack tide buoy 10 “anchovy gobblers” . That there looks like a bigun.

Mostly over close to the N. jetty.

Looks more like a Red Irish Lord to me, I've seen a couple caught before on charter boats.

Irish lord, cabezone and sculpin all look alike, but
I believe Buffalo Sculpin due to the 'horn' on each side of it's head.

I think so too, and the fact that it can change color. Thank you all!

It was caught on the south jetty, not too far (around the yellow mark/paint), coming in but low tide, with a Biwaa 4" ultra hog plus crappie nibble.
