Playing for Keeps
I usually practice catch and release - and had the intent to do so again this morning, but when I hooked this goatfish, the hook went into his check.
It looked like it lost some blood on the beach, and I didn't think it would make it back out without becoming food for another fish (Giant Trevally).
So I decided to keep this one.
The pictures still aren't clear (sorry - new camera is on it's way - thanks La), but this is from beach to belly.
I used a garlic salt, chili powder, black pepper rub, and pan fried it.
The meat is firm and tasty - I know what I'll be eating in the future!
If you catch it (and can't let it go) - you eat it!
