Wreckfish and Weekend Specialties 5.3.17 May 02 2017 Posted in
Wreckfish season is back (April 16- Jan 14) and we have some great product in-house now. 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.
We hope you'll stop by this weekend and take advantage! Stay tuned next Thursday for another edition of specialty items. Please note that occasionally items listed will not make it to our store due to weather or unforeseen supply issues.
