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.
