When in Mexico

Recommended Posts

Years ago snook use to be called soap fish for a reasons which i don't remember, i have caught a lot of snook but have never eatin any snook as there are better fish to eat.

Ok here is why in the early days snook was called soap fish.. When cooking snook, the skin must be removed, because otherwise it imparts an unpleasant taste, described as soapy, to the fish.[20]

I was going to post that I have eaten Snook and it was great. Only the one time and wouldn't do it again. They are a great sports fish and living in Missouri I don't get to fish for them anymore.
