    Hit 2 spots this morning and raised the white striped tail...3rd was Quivara where I picked up a barely legal Sculpin. Wow, that was an interesting fight! Lots of life for a fish that size! I’ll post a couple better photos soon, including the tacos...

    Skipped the tacos, went straight for the pan fry. Wow! Delicious! Slightly earthy, but clean. Semi firm, yummy lol

    HaHa ! Found some meat behind the head, I guess shoulder area that I couldn't get to, seemed quality stuff covered up by the top of the gill plate and some of the bone in the head.

    Thank you.
