Default Barracuda?

I used to eat cuda when I lived in S FL as long as they were under 36" or so and they were pretty dang good. I've never heard of anyone eating them up here though, is there a reason? Are they more likely to carry cig here or are most just cautious? Thanks

Actually ciguatera is more prevalent in warmer waters further south.

I think the reason not many people eat them is because there are TONS better fish to eat.

JD, have you ever eaten one? There are tons of good eating fish here no doubt, but many of the "good" ones aren't as good as a cuda to me. A 3' or under cuda is way better eating IMO than snapper, AJs and such. Very good quality, firm filets. When I'm in the Keys, I make sure I target smaller cudas at least one morning to stock up some filets.

Probably, labeled as trigger fish or scamp... there's some shit in there where the label is not even close to how the fillet is supposed to look.

They did a study in Mobile a few years ago and found that 9 out of 12 restaurants that claimed to carry grouper were actually selling a japanese catfish as grouper.

Pollack is consistantly sold as Grouper and other local fishes at many restaurants up and down the Emerald Coast! I worked at a few....

I went to the crab trap in Destin the other day and all the fish prices...yellowfin, triggerfish,ajs,grouper,mahi were all the same price with a dollar or two. Seems odd to me unless they were only giving you a small piece of yellowfin. As good as trigger is it doesn't compare to yellowfin.

I had a friend of mine that stayed sick for over a year after eating a barracuda from our waters.
