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.

The common name grouper is usually given to fish in one of two large genera : Epimetheus and Mycteroperca. In addition, the species classified in the small genera Hyperion, Completes, Dermatologist, Graciela, Scotia, and Trio are also called 'groupers'.

However, some hamlets (genus Affected), the hinds (genus Cephalopods), the lyre tails (genus Various) and some other small genera (Gonioplectrus, Nippon, Paranoia) are also in this subfamily, and occasional species in other serrated genera have common names involving the word grouper “. Nonetheless, the word grouper on its own is usually taken as meaning the subfamily Epinephrine.

Groupers are Telecasts, typically having a stout body and a large mouth. They can be quite large, and lengths over a meter and the largest is the Atlantic Goliath grouper (Epimetheus Tamara) which has been weighed at 399 kilograms (880 pounds) and a length of 2.43 m (7 ft 11 1 2 in), though in such a large group, species vary considerably.

They do not have many teeth on the edges of their jaws, but they have heavy crushing tooth plates inside the pharynx. They habitually eat fish, octopuses, and crustaceans.

Reports of fatal attacks on humans by the largest species, such as the giant grouper (Epimetheus lanceolatus) are unconfirmed. They also use their mouths to dig into sand to form their shelters under big rocks, jetting it out through their gills.

The word grouper is from the Portuguese name, group, which has been speculated to come from an indigenous South American language. In New Zealand, “groper” refers to a type of wreck fish, Poly prion oxygenate, which goes by the Mori name haiku.

In the Middle East, the fish is known as hammer ', and is widely eaten, especially in the Persian Gulf region. The species in the tribes Grammistini and Diploprionini secrete a mucus like toxin in their skin called Rammstein and when they are confined in a restricted space and subjected to stress the mucus produces a foam which is toxic to nearby fish, these fishes are often called soap fishes.

Groupers are mostly monastic protogynous hermaphrodites, i.e. they mature only as females and have the ability to change sex after sexual maturity. The largest males often control harems containing three to 15 females.

As such, if a small female grouper were to change sex before it could control a harem as a male, its fitness would decrease. If no male is available, the largest female that can increase fitness by changing sex will do so.

Gonochorism, or a reproductive strategy with two distinct sexes, has evolved independently in groupers at least five times. The evolution of gonochorism is linked to group spawning high amounts of habitat cover.

Both group spawning and habitat cover increase the likelihood of a smaller male to reproduce in the presence of large males. Fitness of male groupers in environments where competitive exclusion of smaller males is not possible is correlated with sperm production and thus testicle size.

Gonochoristic groupers have larger testes than protogynous groupers (10% of body mass compared to 1% of body mass), indicating the evolution of gonochorism increased male grouper fitness in environments where large males were unable to competitively exclude small males from reproducing. Many groupers are important food fish, and some of them are now farmed.

Unlike most other fish species which are chilled or frozen, groupers are usually sold live in markets. Groupers are commonly reported as a source of Ciguatera fish poisoning.

DNA barcoding of grouper species might help in controlling Ciguatera fish poisoning since fish are easily identified, even from meal remnants, with molecular tools. In September 2010, a Costa Rican newspaper reported a 2.3 m (7 ft 7 in) grouper in Cieneguita, Limón.

The weight of the fish was 250 kg (550 lb) and it was lured using one kilogram of bait. In November 2013, a 310 kg (680 lb) grouper had been caught and sold to a hotel in Dong yuan, China.

“Gulf grouper swallows 4 foot shark in a single bite”. Wiki source has the text of the 1905 New International Encyclopedia article Grouper “.

Flavor/Texture : These oily fish have a reputation for tasting “fishy,” but high-quality anchovies have a meaty texture and a super umami-forward flavor. 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. The sour cream dill sauce is subtly seasoned with horseradish so that it doesn't overpower the delicate salmon flavor.

The Florida coast is teeming with all kinds of wonderfully tasty fish you can enjoy in endless ways both at home and in restaurants. Whether you want to take a boat out into the open waters and cast a line into the deep blue yourself or you prefer to pull up a chair and order your catch of the day from a local seafood restaurant, here are the four best Gulf Coast fish to eat fresh in Florida.

This type of fish has a very mild flavor (somewhere in between sea bass and halibut) with a light, sweet taste and large, chunky flakes, almost like lobster or crab. But you’ll also find it served in fillets which are baked, grilled or broiled with a flavor-bursting medley of garlic, butter, olive oil and key lime juice.

If you prefer your fish to be filleted, Snapper is amazing when marinated in the same citrus-garlic-cilantro mix mentioned above and quickly sautéed in a hot pan with a drizzle of olive oil before being served with light, fluffy rice and fresh seasonal veggies. Shook is really popular among local fishermen because it offers a fun challenge to catch and it tastes fantastic.

In Santa Rosa Beach, Buddy’s Seafood Market always has a fresh supply of Mali, grouper and other in-season fish. During the week she knuckles down and gets the job done, but on the weekend she spends her time soaking up the sunshine on the little volcanic island she calls home.

The red snapper is named for the way it suddenly and forcibly opens and shuts its jaws when dying. But they will settle for crabs, squid, worms, mollusks, and algae.

They usually remain near the coast during the summer and move offshore as fall arrives. Unfortunately, this creature is one of about 300 species that can cause a painful type of food poisoning, called ciguatera.

Scientists think ciguatera is caused when the red snapper eats a type of poisonous blue-green algae. Although the approximately 400 species of groupers vary greatly, most have several features in common.

They usually have robust bodies covered with steroid, or toothed, scales. Groupers have a dorsal fin with a well-developed anterior spinors portion.

The pelvic fins, which have a spine and five soft rays, are well forward on the belly. Adult groupers vary from a few inches in length and several ounces in weight to gigantic proportions.

The largest species is probably the Queensland grouper (Promiscuous lanceolatus) of Australia; the biggest on record was 12 feet (3.5 meters) long and weighed 1,000 pounds (454 kg). Larger groupers tend to be drab; smaller ones are often brightly colored and patterned.

A 16-year-old girl who went deep- sea fishing recently for only her second time, reeled up an estimated 583-pound Goliath grouper, which dwarfs the women’s world record for the species. “I was, like, in shock pretty much,” Reagan Werner told the Trinities Pioneer Press on Saturday.

Werner, who is from Farmington, Minn., was fishing May 31 near Marco Island off Florida with her brother, mother, and stepfather. “These things have amazing power,” Paul Hartman, Werner’s stepfather, told the Pioneer Press.

According to the International Game Fish Assn., the heaviest Goliath grouper caught by a woman weighed 366 pounds. Thanks to the longstanding harvesting ban, the population is growing and larger fish are again being encountered by scuba divers and catch-and-release anglers.

Given that the source material being an internet poll, the answers tend to generalize and several large families of fish have been grouped together. The polls result also tend to favor more popular fish, but the number-one answer did surprise us.

Its lean, flaky meat is very versatile and can be cooked in a number of ways, and halibut cheeks are especially prized as the most tender part of the fish. If you’re lucky enough to have some halibut on hand, try squeezing out a little fresh lemon juice on it, dip it in batter and deep-fry it.

Many people count white perch among their favorite fish for its flaky texture and mild taste. We like to use a deep-frying pan with olive oil for a tangy taste that’s also good for you.

Image from Geeklikepi on the Wikimedia Commons. Oily, moist, and fairly mild with a sweet flavor, the red snapper is a fish that is hard to mess up. One of our favorite ways to prepare snapper is by melting butter mixed with a splash of Worcestershire sauce and some fresh garlic.

Take a glass baking dish and place the snapper in it, and then pour the butter sauce over the top. Image from the NOAA. Yellowfin tuna, or AHI, is one of the more coveted fish on this list, especially by chefs specializing in sashimi.

There are so many ways to prepare trout, but our favorite has to be pan searing it in a cast iron skillet. Image from Kim on Flickr. High in fat and low in the dreaded fishy flavor, sea bass is best grilled, poached, or steamed.

Image from Edsel Little on Flickr. Much like halibut, walleye is incredibly versatile and can be made into pretty much anything. There are so many great ways to eat walleye, and the fact that it’s only at #4 on this list says they didn’t ask enough Midwesterner.

Possibly one of the most overused fish in the country, salmon still enjoys a stellar reputation for its firm, flaky flesh and mild flavor. If you want a real treat, get a Camp Chef Pellet Smoker and carefully smoke your salmon to perfection.

He cooks it in many ways, but our favorite is when he takes a sharp fillet knife and makes slits across the meat. Image from Divervincent on Wikimedia. You might not have heard of this one before, and frankly we were a bit surprised to see it on top of the poll.

Also known as km, one of the few places you could fish for this species is Hawaii, and spearfishing is generally preferred.
