The yellow eye was a bit beat up and zombie-like, however not bad for likely being over 100 years old :)

It was actually a very impressive animal. Quite a bit larger than a normal rockfish at 3 feet long, and quite a bit wider in proportion!

That is one ugly YellowEye! Awesome photos as always. The viz around the west side of Fidalgo/Whidbey had been awesome lately. Way to take full advantage :supz:
