Gone Fishing

To honor the generations of Boomers who've fished waters in search of prizes large and small, this puzzle is angling for the names of fish. As simple as shooting fish in a barrel you ask...goodness no, fishing is never easy and you'll find many of these are not common fish for sure. However, given there is wordplay or trickery afoot with many of these fish, you'll catch them eventually once you take their name's sake into account laugh

Each clue strives to help you in your quest so pay attention as the pun will nibble and the play with words will direct your final catch. Don't fret as some fish allude your line, just be patient and work with the number of letters at the end of each clue to help you catch them all wink

Example: This fish has a heavenly body <8> --> starfish
