Good eats

This past weekend we went out fishing and we caught more then we could keep. If you have never had striper to eat you don't know what your missing. We went out two days and caught our limit both days of Va Beach coast. When the fish were not biting the whales were putting on a show but I never could get any pics of them. Its not me in the pic so I marked through their face.

Re: Good eats

Looks awesome, FD. I didn't know we had fish that big in VA. I've always wanted to do deep sea fishing in the OBX when I go down, but never have.

Re: Good eats

We have some pretty big fish in our area. Sharks, stripers (those in the pic are nice size but they get bigger), red and black drum (the blacks can get over 90 pounds), and many other fish. They are catching 300 pound blue fin tuna within a mile of the beach but its rare they run in this close to shore.

Tonight I'm baking some tonight with sliced up tomatoes, onions, old bay, lemon and a slice of bacon on each side. Bake them for a few minutes then add some white wine and let it cook down. They do make good fish san.

Daseal, my offer is open to anyone here that wants to go to let me know and now is a great time to fish. I enjoy putting people on the fish as much as I do catching them myself.

Re: Good eats

This guy got a pic of one of the whales jumping. Pretty cool to see this just 50 yards away. He has one bad ass camera and takes some really nice pics while he is fishing. If you know the area thats the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel in the back ground.

Re: Good eats

Nothing better than fresh rockfish. I go out with a buddy of mine every spring when the trophy fish are running. He usually has about 20 lines in at once run on out riggers, its such a blast. The way I prepare mine is with a sprinkle of salt and pepper a hint of fresh lemon juice and a pile of crab meat on top, wrap it in foil toss it on medium heat on the grill and 15 minutes later your good to go.

Totally agree. You saw my scallop tacos last night. Cash money homey.

I'll have to say after my dinner tonight fiish tacos are a strong second. How do you cook and make yours?

I use tuna and blacken it with House Bayou Blackening Spice. We just use the mild Salsa from Harris Teeters, cheese, and my wife makes up some sour cream stuff. We also use shreaded cabbage which gives them a nice
crunch.

This is the blackening spice we use its the best I have found which I think you can also get at Harris Teeters.

A little blackening seasoning is the way to go. I chopped up a gorgeous orange bell pepper last night with my scallop tacos- gave it some great crunch. I'm also a fan of fresh avocado/guacamole on my tacos, and cilantro and lime are also a must. Some fresh pico de gallo never hurts either.

I cheat and get them out. A local spot we go to has them for a special once a week on Tuesday nights. Haven't tried making them at home.
