Cabezone is a large species of sculpin found along the West coast of North America, between Northern British Columbia and Southern California. They primarily reside in kelp beds and rocks, where they can prey on small fish, crustaceans and feed on mollusks. They can be identified by their brown body colour, the broad square tail, the eleven spines along the dorsal part of the body and a stout spine before the eyes. While they are not prime target fish by anglers in British Columbia, their eating quality is in fact very good. Cabezone can be caught by bottom fishing with cut bait or jigs. Most cabezone are in the several pound range, while fish up to 20lb have been recorded in the past.
