Looking for Monkfish

I have been fascinated by Monkfish for a long time. Its out-of this-world look make this fish very special. A monkfish is basically a huge mouth on a huge head and a tiny body. It is a flat fish, very tasteful to eat and not that easy to find.

Few weeks ago a friend sent me an email to tell me that they have recently seen monkfish around a shipwreck which lays 36 meters (120 feet) below the surface, near Machichaco cape, not far from my place. I manage to organize a dive that same day and got my first photos of a monkfish:
