Yup, it's a keeper.

Is that a Drum, or what the cajuns call a Gaspergoo?

Zack them goo fishes are freshwater. But they are cousins. I've ate many a goo fish when the desired species weren't biting. owl are you going to do the reds on the grill? I like them on the half shell marinated in italian dressing first.

Filleted, Italian dressing, lemon & herb powder and enough cayenne to know it is there. A few minutes over charcoal & split mesquite.

But that is in the past,,,,,,,,,shore wuz guuuud !

Next weekend we hunt for the next victim. Got my bonus tag for over slot Red in hand ! :biggrin:

"South Coast Jetty" reads: Texas Refish and Black Tuna are the big catches this past week on the Mustang Island.

I believe that is a redfish, AKA puppy drum, AKA mudfish. They run the mid Atlantic coast in the spring and can be found in the surf, or up rivers and marshes in brackish water. They're fun to catch as they hit hard.
