Wreckfish and Weekend Specialties 7.28.16 July 27 2016 Posted in

We have some great looking Wreckfish coming in this week.  Although Wreckfish are found all along the East Coast, most commercial landings are from the Charleston Bump, a deep-water bank located 80 to 100 miles off the cost of South Carolina.  Wreckfish enjoy deep-water habitats around sheltered structures and are caught using heavy-duty hydraulic reels with 1/8 inch cables.  The fishery is well managed to ensure long term sustainability.  While they can be tough to catch, the result is well worth the effort.  Wreck fish have a large flake, sweat flavor and nice skin that crisps well.
