Default Snapper Throats

We went snapper fishing with a longtime family friend on the Lazy Line II out of Fort Morgan Marina Saturday and had a blast. We caught a limit of quality fish and 2 boys got their first trip in the gulf. More pics are in the Offshore Charter Reports.

I'm always amazed how few people cut out the throats. Lots of goodness going to waste. IMO throats are way better than the filets. Deckhands complain that it is to much work (3 or 4 snips w/ pruning shears) and most folks simply don't know what to do with 'em.

Sometimes simple is best. Cracker meal, creole seasoning and peanut oil.

Trigger throates are better than the trigger meat. The old saying, closer to the bone sweeter the meat

I was on the harbor walk last weekend and saw some fine throats going to waste. Someone is keeping them because I saw them in the Sexton's seafood market... I always keep them.

Trigger throats take the cake. I was biotching the whole time I was cutting out snapper throats. Would it really devastate the trigger population if the limit was only 1 per?

Oh Yeah, plenty of goodness in those throats. Kind of reminds me of chicken thighs.

if you're cleaning your fish at sportsman's during a charter cleaning, you'll strike a gold mine of throats. i'm not to proud to beg the carcasses.
a 30 inch ars has a throat as big as two chicken legs.

I've done that before with mixed results. Seen the charter get pissed and stiff the deckhands for not doing it in the first place. Also had a charter ask for "his" throats back after I cut them out.
