Awsome !! I have had it for dinner a couple times. Mmmmmm !! Never caught one though.


I only like it deep fried and I like his cooking over everyone else's (although most of our Lake Erie buddies fry it pretty well). The cheek meat is supposed to be the best part, but I'm weird. I don't like the texture. Someone once used them in a crab cake recipe and that was pretty good.

Man I gotta get me some shorts like that for the next time I go hop around the lake trying to fool the fish into thinking I'm just a big frog.

View attachment 1514729 hog fish!!! everyone loves these fish and it is the most popular eating fish here in the keys latley. They are extremely difficult to catch on hook and line, and most are caught as by catch in lobster traps or they are speared by spearfisherman and then brought to market. There is a local technique here called "hog doggin" . When hog doggin you fish for them underwater while snorkeling. Using a hand line you get in the water and feed the fish by hand, then hook them and wrestle them back to the boat !! Huge fun for us locals
And yes I have many pairs of mahi print shorts. They really are my work uniform. I can jump in and swim and they dry quick, and then back to fishing.

Live action I-phone shot !! Mahi mahi/dolphin/dorado !! My personal favorite. Hard to over cook, great tasting, firm not soft, and plentiful. These are a blast to catch, and fight and leap like no other fish. They are shockingly bright with bright blues greens and yellows. It is not uncommon to catch them up to 40 or 50 pounds, and you will know it when it happens. They break tackle and beat up the boat but what fun !! I fish a lot of tournaments for these !! See he matches my mahi print shorts.

My wife and I go down to the great state of Florida every fall for two weeks and I hire a guide for a day. We work the shallow water in the panhandle area and we located a school of bull redfish chasing baitfish near the surface. Unbelievable sight to say the least. My first cast hooked-up with this beauty. He was released to fight another day...

photo-165.JPG I also commercial lobster fish when its really good and they need help or when someone no shows. It gets old and boring to me quick even though I can do it in my sleep. The same thing over and over for months. This is a great day with 1500 pounds of live spiney lobster. The price was at one of its highest that day and we got 21$ a pound. They were all shipped live all the way to china by air. Big catch big dollar day. As a treasure hunter I call it orange gold !!
