looks like a relative of the "speckled trout" you'd find in the gulf area. Good eats I'd bet.
You mean like a sardine?
JB nailed it. Weird looking fish. Does look like a bait fish plus a hint of trout in it. They are chasing white eye bait fish, sardine size fish.
Cooked up a few filets for breakfast. Amazing!
Literally what I was thinking when I typed it. Wouldn’t eat either one of them. But you can turn them into tuna and wahoo.
Funny, when I was looking into it, it didn't seem like they were highly regarded as table fare. Everything I saw mentioned that they have a very strong flavor. I watched a youtube video of a guy preparing them and the first thing that I noticed is that they have a layer of dark meat just under the skin (like a striper) and the guy prepping them didn't take it off. I couldn't help but wonder if folks would like it better if they took that dark meat out...
Very similar to a striper with that red vein. We were told to cut that out which I did. Common practice. Cooked the fish in butter and salt. That’s all I had. I’m not a big fish eater, very picky. No “fish” taste what so ever. Pretty amazing. Off to check out crater lakes.
Heck, no Ab'ing there either?
Not even with a screw driver?
The abalone fishery there is serious business. Licenses are worth 1M$ easy, and the guys who hold them make good money. Of course you got to deal with whitey.
