At 109 cm (3' 7") my biggest jewie, aka northern mulloway. Far too heavy to carry home...

All,

 

My one and only known experience with jewfish was very mild, not fishy and poor texture.  

 

I don't believe I've  seen that fish before.  Are they common Bob?

Black jewfish, or, according to some experts, the black croaker, is a very much sought after fish due to its fighting and eating qualities. It is not too common, not being targetted by the pro net fishos. I have only eaten jewies twice and really enjoyed the flesh, being fairly dry and flakey but one of its better points is that even 70 lb fish are good eating, whereas those at about 2-5 lbs, are called 'soapies'...A close cousin is called teraglin, or 'trag' to the average fisho and rarely grows to 12 lbs but is also high on the amateurs' list. Odd thing is the mouth is bright yellow, verging on orange.





Cheers, Bobj.

At first, I thought this was going to be a thread about Sammy Davis Jr.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.
