When I was pulling the hook out, they gave off a high-frequency vibration -- like a cell phone or pager with a very dead battery. It was the strangest thing I'd ever experienced! Was expecting an electric shock to follow...

There were a few caught last year on the fishing trip I was party to. This was right out of Hampton, NH. I and another lucked into Altantic Catfish or Wolffish. About the ugliest thing I've ever seen and darned surely the tastiest as well!
After all day fishing I don't think more than 3 cod were caught, all too small to keep.
This was a hell of a trip! I haven't been on the ocean in over 20 years, but I saw more on this one trip than ever in my life!! We had hundreds of dolphin pods swimming around us ( on the way there across the bay ), & we saw at least 10 right whales. Better than Sea World -- you couldn't buy this!! I was eye to eye with some dolphins playing in the wake. Every time they'd see the boat, they'd come over & play. VERY COOL! We were about 40 feet parallel to a whale & it's calf -- was the size of a bus! We could hear them blowing off all around us while we were fishing. Plus the water was as smooth as a lake!! Z E R O wind -- NEVER been anywhere on the Cape & had no wind!
