Possible Threadfin

I ran into this individual down about 120' at Sund Rock.

I have tentatively identified it as a Threadfin Sculpin. Thoughts?

looks like it to me. the two first dorsal rays look right. they have pretty big, solid, dark cirri which don't seem to be up in these shots. Great photo's and find!
