Check this out, ATS. What do you think about this fish? I've never heard of one of these. This just goes to show that no matter how much you know
or think you know, there's always more to know and learn.
I've been in the Water with one surfing on Cape Cod. At first I saw a huge dorsal fin and thought it was a shark, but someone said it was a Sunfish
and proceeded to paddle after it. He later told me they often lie on their sides, almost floating to catch the sun and you can pet them. Somewhat rare
to see on the Cape.
I once hopped under a kelp patty in SoCal (Diving) and lo and behold there was a giant sunfish. I had never before seen one but it did not stop me
from a slow approach. Believe it or not; I got to pet him/her. Right on the face. It was one of the coolest moments I have ever had as a diver.
