Black Sea Bass Vs Grouper

I wanted to get some feedback on a theory that I hope is completely false, but frankly, I'm concerned. Went offshore last week to try to catch a limit of grouper before the season goes out and went up to 40 miles out hitting nearly 20 ledges on our GPS.

Skiff, your theory is right. With little to NO harvest all year they took over most all ledges. It would have been better to kill&release all year but it's too late now. There won't be anyone fishing with BG closed next 4 mos. Sure hope they {bass} don't eat EVERYTHING out there! When will bass migrate back north ? Anyone knows? You're welcome N/Hatteras Virginia. You should be made up. Check out some Gulf of Mexico fishing sites, and they are having the same problem but with American red snapper, they are eating the other species out of house and home, literally.

I believe that the BSB population will at the very least change the migratory habits of our grouper, and other game fish. More than likely they will go farther offshore and become harder to reach for most anglers, they will also be more dispersed.

Open up a BSB, and they are stuffed full of juvenile vermilion snapper Freaking things are a nuisance Don't worry though, they will get pushed offshore shortly as the hordes of endangered dog fish begin to arrive to spawn.

Also, we stayed away from the usual cut baits to keep the sharks somewhat at bay.but if they became too thick, we would pull up and drink a couple beers to allow them to disperse. I don't know, can someone shed more light on this situation. I asked the SFMC this very question at their propaganda show in Raleigh.

Specifically, I asked regarding rec angler intercepts and phone surveys. Since FL has such a high rec angler population and relatively low BSB population since it is the extreme southernmost end of their range, my theory is that the data coming in is heavily weighted towards the parts of the BSB range where they are not naturally present.

It has the texture of chicken (little tougher meat than most fish) but very mild flavor. Squid Row wrote:Steve wrote:Oh by the way does anyone know how to make one Atlantic Sharp nose Shark taste good? Gut them immediately (while still alive) and ice them down.

As Rodeo stated, the grouper will usually show up after you get a feeding frenzy started. The key is to use big live baits, anchor and release about 50 BSB.

At some point the grouper will come to check out the action and push the BSB out of the way. I have not caught hardly any grouper on jigs inside 140' since the BSB have multiplied.

I have some friends who dive and the gag grouper populations are very healthy. If you overpopulate a single species then biodiversity goes to hell and you get a multitude of unintended consequences.

When the striped bass moratorium went into effect, there were weakfish (gray trout), craters, spot, tons of herring, and eels in great abundance in the bay and the tributaries. Spots are “imported” from the Chesapeake, and purchased by people live for $2.50 a piece (retail) for stripper bait (really, I'm not making this up).

We, as sportsmen saw this coming as (when it was legal) the best large stripper bait was a 14" weakfish. I support the RFA and send letters,, however it feels a lot like p**ING in the wind.

Flavor/Texture : This mild fish has a slightly sweet flavor and a medium-firm texture that eats juicy when cooked properly. Some people soak catfish in milk or salt water to remove its somewhat muddy flavor.

Substitutes : The best alternative for this one is black cod (also called sable fish), which is often touted as a more sustainable option. Flavor/Texture : Although cod has a delicate, flaky texture, it’s also resiliently meaty and can hold up to just about any cooking method.

It’s prized for its meaty, sweet flavor and boasts an impressively firm texture with big flakes. Substitutes : Any fish with meaty texture works well here, like swordfish, marlin or shark.

Can be used to describe many kinds of saltwater fish, including striped bass, rock cod, redfish and ocean perch. Flavor/Texture : A mild fish with a slightly nutty flavor, a medium texture and a fine flake.

Substitutes : Swap in one of the many fish synonymous with rock fish, or look for red snapper, porgy or cod. Most people marinate shark meat to remove the naturally occurring ammonia flavor.

Flavor/Texture : Although it’s a lean fish, properly cooked snapper is moist with a mild, sweet flavor and a delicate but firm texture. Substitutes : Any whitefish with a delicate flavor will work here, like tile fish, flounder or grouper.

When cooked, this fish flakes easily but sushi-grade tuna can be consumed raw and has a delicate, melt-in-your-mouth quality. Substitutes : Choose a whitefish with a flaky texture, like haddock, rock fish or snapper.
