I saw the photos and thought it looked just like a conger, and nothing like a pike blenny... Just to be sure I sent a link to fish department at the history museum, here is what they said:

Scott,
We think it is a Catalina conger (Gnathophis catalinensis). It would be nice to see the tail region though.

Nice find Elaine! Keep them coming....
