Default Pomp limit--Orange Beach

Got my limit of pomps this AM between 7:30 and 11:00am. Fresh shrimp. Love fleas didn't do a thing. Many cat fish and 1 20lb ray. Yes, I kept the ray as a buddy of my SWEARS they taste good. Against my better judgement I am going to give it another try. Last time I tried a ray the meat was from a monster so maybe it was too big, 20 years ago, which tasted discusting. Now the buddy that recommended this also likes squirrel brains so given that individual tastes are not the same, I am not very optimistic. My neighbor added 1 pomp to todays harvest.

Default How does sting ray taste?

Fried with Zaterans southern blend along with pompano --- It was good. Taste like scallops? No -- does not quite have the rubbery texture or flavor. I would rank it better than speckled or white trout/mullet, not as good as flounder/grouper/trigger. As good as the snappers. This of course is my opinion.

Eaten mullet all my life. Love it. The comparison is in relation to a clean taste, versus the heavier taste we all love as mullet. Now where is my net? But yes, I was suprised. Of all things, my son declared that the ray tasted better than the pompano!!!!! I still have a serious mental thing eating Mr. Sting Ray.

Default Stingray prep

Zataran, southern blend --- too salty for my taste but the ray meat was a suprise. Not fantastic but not bad.

Skin the wings, Get a good bear batter, deep fry in peanut oil, and place next to a cold beer and enjoy. I think they rock. And in some places they do use the as imitation scallops. They get eaten all the time in Savannah, GA.
