    Default Fishing 2017

    About time to start a new fishing thread. Caught some redfish out of the 'yak this evening. They fight really hard all the time but while the water's cool, they are just brutes and will give you quite a ride.

    Nice looking fish, Ray. What's inside, white flesh? How do you normally eat that species?

    It is a blast Cory, nothing like being towed around by a fish. Jay, reds this size are pretty good any way you fix them, the meat is light colored and flaky. Since you convinced me that eating raw fish wouldn't kill me, I've found they are pretty good with only soy and wasabi but my absolute favorite recipe is what we call redfish on the half-shell. I fillet them, leaving skin and scales intact. Seasoned and cooked on the grill skin side down they will make you hurt yourself.

    It looked like a white meat type, reminded me of one that is light colored and flaky that we have here. I imagine good in a stew as well.

    Those big Kings in the Smith and Eel Rivers could tow you around for hours.

    I bet they would. I've been trying to get the nerve to do a shark or tarpon trip out of the kayak Gerry, just got some reservations.
