Default Picture of a SCUP?

Does any one have a picture of a scup,so I can see what they look like,they are foreign to our waters. Unless it is another name for something we do share as bait! (delaware bay&delaware river)

And they come right into the jetties in NJ.

Use a pair of kitchen scissors to cut off the dorsal fin (nasty spikes) Slam an 8/0 Gami behind his head and send em off to find you a cow.

Last year there was an 8' minimum length that few knew about and the wardens were killing people for small fish on the piers in NJ.

Porgys, they were in the Delaware Bay back in the 60's. Used to catch boatloads of them.....And yes, I also helped to wipe out the Dinosaurs.

Blowfish too, nobody thought about fishing them out, people caught trashcans full of them. But real good eating.

There were a ton of Porgy's and seabass when I was a kid. Big humpback Porgy's, ya don't see them anymore. Too bad.
