Only kidding it's a blackfish.

What kind of crabs are you getting in your traps now?

no crabs.. I was to lazy to pull the traps out from last yr. I'm getting antsy so I pulled them up today to see if I would be able to use them next season. A few times last yr I had some fluke in them.

i cought a few small togs like that while fishing i was told when they are young they can change colors to adapt to their surroundings to give them a better chance at not being eaten by other fish

That is definitely a blackfish. Bergals (cunner) have a narrower head and a nasty set of teeth. Small bergals are normally olive and brown colored. When you see larger bergals further from shore, they can take many colors depending on the conditions, commonly orange and brown.

Look at the mouth on that thing, doesn't look anything like a winter flounder to me!
