the nose is too round for a guitar fish. it might be a thornback ray.

I got one of these of the haywad shoreline at low tide. Wierd looking fish so I looked it up and I thought it was a Guitarfish. Didn't know about thornback rays! What are they?

You're probably right about the roundness on that one. Now that I look at it harder, I would agree - it's too round. I think you're right about it being a thornback.

Has the right shape.

Not round enough for a thornback. Caught a few this year.

mmm, I'd have to disagree. I've seen them up on that pier - never caught one personally - but that's about what they looked like at the head.

(Of course, this could go on forever. But given the fact that the picture isn't clear enough to distinguish what it REALLY it, I figure we can all just leave it at "nice fish, whatever it is.")
