When the water is this calm, we call it "The Lake of Mexico".
Locally, they're called black snapper, but I think grey or mangrove snapper is more common.
I see a frying pan on the horizon, or a grill...
I vote grill. My favorite way to eat snapper.
We change it up . . . fried, baked, blackened, and grilled (not necessarily in that order).
Definitely on a grill. I’m a fool for Mutton Snapper. Congratulations on a nice catch
Another beautiful day on the Gulf Coast . . . cleaning yesterday's catch and listening to Steely Dan.
Jealous! The gulf coast along the Florida panhandle is my happy place. Grilled and/or blackened would be my vote for that snapper.
are you reelin' in the fish?
I grew up on the water in St Pete Beach. Loved fishing right off our dock for snook, redfish, sheepshead, mullet, crabs, and in the Gulf for barracuda, grouper, king mackerel ... great times.
Last one. There's an old fisherman's saying: "You don't know how to fillet a fish until you can read a newspaper through its ribs".
I'm not quite there.
My envy of you is BIG ese! Cool story, and fish!
Sheepshead story: I was cleaning barnacles off my rudder (on scuba), and a huge sheepshead was in my face getting a free meal. He bothered me so much, I got on the boat, grabbed a speargun, and shot the SOB (ate him that night).
I have no idea what it would look like today, but when I was bumming around the countryside with my old man when I was eight years old we ended up in Galveston. To my eight year old's eyes, it was the most beautiful place I had ever seen! It's been seventy years since I last saw Galveston, but in my mind it's still beautiful.
I am lucky to live on the "Emerald Coast". It is appropriately named.
