Pipefish pics

2 new gulf pipefish (Syngnathus scovelli), I think some people also call these dwarf pipefish because they only get 3-4" or so.




And this is a nice alligator pipefish (Syngnathoides biaculeatus) which can get up to 8-9", this guy is a good 6-7".

These are sw and being kept in 1.020 sg. I use dipnets most of the time, I do have other equipment but the dipnet seems to be the easiest to work with.

About 10 feet. These guys are all over the grass beds in knee deep water. That large alligator pipefish I happened to get while I was about 100ft out but the water was about waist deep at the most.

The usual suspects in the net are pipefish, grass/ghost shrimp by the hundreds, tons of snails (I'm not good enough to differentiate the snails yet), and sometimes filefish, pinfish, or seahorses. I've also seen pictures of people catching anglerfish (sargassum) various puffers, and a scrawled cowfish to name a few

Wow! What an awesome catch. Makes me want a pipefish even more sometime in the future. Do you have a permit or something to catch those kinds of fish or is it just like catching any other type of fish? I live near the beach in CA and there's a bunch of tide pools and life around, but I'm almost positive it's protected and illegal to take specimens if not permitted. That would be awesome to have a free resource for fish and such very close by though!
