Not really dangerous unless you catch one and mis-handle it. I think weevers are more dodgy being only small but delivering a very painful sting if you are not careful.

Interesting comments from the 'so called experts' as we used to target them and catch a fair few from under hillhead cliffs, a very shallow beach and they are not rare in the solent. Andy had one 50lb+ on Sea Fox and I have had them to 18lb+ from the beach. Raymond got a light sting from one whilst unhooking it, he said it really hurt but I was to busy laughing.

Yep we used big rag baits on a 3/0 or 4/0 often tipped with a SMALL bit of fish like a sandeel head.
