My 6 Year Old on Bull Reds

Postby psychobilly » Fri Nov 03, 2017 4:16 am

Well, we got the new "plastic boat" as I just don't have time to build right now. I have taken my boy out twice now and the last time I put him on Bull Reds in the 40" range on light tackle. What a great time!

Very proud of my boy. He cranked in 8 Bull Reds, 2 Jacks, and that shark. I had to help with most of them but the second Jack he was determined to get it in by himself. lol

Sweet. He'll remember that for sure.
What is that other one, a jack, or pompano?

You bet he will Ken. He's already practicing telling fish stories too. lol

It's a Jack. We kept two of them for my neighbors as they like the Jack.i was going to ask his momma how she cooks them but she doesn't speak English.

I knew the jacks on the Pacific side of oceans. It was a good table fare.
I have noticed that fish tastes change from Atlantic to Pacific as far as species goes.
pacific jacks are good table fare. atlantic jacks not so much.

same with sturgeon. (surgeon). the little ones with the hard sided tails.
In the Pacific, they were the #1 fare on the grill; in the atlantic, they were junk.

I hear ya.... it's weird how that is. When I was a kid growing up in Bayou La Batre, we ate mullet once or twice a week as we net fished them. Mississippi on around Texas, not so much. But we know why as Alabama on over is mostly sandy bottom and it starts getting muddy on west. I've also eaten a lot of Barracuda in West Africa but I've always been told not to eat here out of the GOM...

My neighbors are Vietnamese and I've eaten a lot of strange food at their house. Some I just don't ask, and most has been good. I suppose I'll try the Jack when they cook it and report back to you.

I've eat many barracuda. under 3' they taste just fine.
I eat bonita too, the clear meat on top of the back, makes good Hawaiian poke' also.

Bonita is just as good as tuna, IF, you use the clear meat above the bloodline,
and, you eat it same day you catch, it wont keep overnight.

But, if you grill it over charcoal fire, then you can keep leftover for a next day tuna-salad samich.

If making the Poke', again, it must be fresh caught, it wont keep overnight.
The texture just falls apart overnight. it's not spoiled, it just loses all its texture, mushy.

Warms my heart great fishing memories you'll treasure wished my dad had taught me my mom did and that was special cause she didn't know anything about fishing still hooked like your son will be in years to come.
